Rev.Kathy Gibson joined the staff on October 1, 2006.  She has a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from OCU and 35 hours in graduate studies in the Master of Arts in Religion program, also at OCU.  She taught elementary school in Duncan and also taught as an adjunct faculty member at OCU as well as creating and directing the Continuing Education in Religion program at OCU.

 Kathy believes that her love of people in general and children in particular, as well as more than 35 years as an active volunteer in all areas of the life of this church, make her well-suited to this position.  “When I reflect on my experience as the mother of 3 and the grandmother of 5, combined with my degree in education and my graduate studies in religion, I’m convinced that I have been preparing for this position all of my life!”
