Marvin J. Gipson, born October 24, 1948 to the late George and Oza Dell Gipson.

A Time to Speak:

He later became a member of Beverly United Methodist Church. In 1969, he was drafted into the United States Army where he remained until he was honorably discharged. He then enrolled at Northwest Community College earning a Master Mechanics Degree. He acknowledged God's calling into the Ministry, and continued his education at Rust College and Jacksonville Theological Seminary earning his Doctorate in Theology. One of his most desired passions was sharing a message from God to many individuals in several communities.
