Rev. Shane Gibson and his family moved to New Orleans in the summer of 2007 to partner up with Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Uptown and to head up their disaster relief ministry. A year later, Shane was ordained as an assistant pastor of Redeemer with the hope of planting a church in a different neighborhood when Redeemer was ready. That hope and dream became a reality in January 2015 when we launched St. Peter's with a team of people from Redeemer to love and serve the Mid-city/Bayou St. John neighborhood. Shane is a graduate of Texas State University in San Marcos where he earned his BA in Philosophy. He also attended Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis where he earned his Masters Degree. Shane also served as the Youth and Family Director of the faith-based non-profit, New Start, in Austin, TX, the year leading up to seminary.
