Katharine Gibb

I grew up a Catholic and went to Catholic school for 16 years, stopped all church after college, got married and three years later we joined the Seventh-day Adventist church for my husband to pursue the ministry. Three years later switched to Baptist and then 6 years later switched to Lutheran. Long journey with many twists and turns. Through it all Christ was my constant and He continues to be at the core of my being. I often pray with students and/or faculty when going through difficult times. Experienced extreme turmoil on the job two years ago and prayer was my only way out. We are never promised an easy road but one that we do not have to travel alone.
