Gipson Baucum

Since Gipson’s graduation Freed-Hardeman with a Masters in New Testament  along with Bachelor degrees in both Bible and Business Administration he has served a variety of roles in his service in the Lord’s church. Youth Ministry, Education Minister, and Associate Minister. He’s been also been involved as a staff member of the Horizons Program every summer. In 2010, Gibson celebrated his 20th year working with the program. The Horizons Program is a camp at FHU that is designed to instill leadership qualities in young people.  There he has taught preaching and song-leading classes along with other topical classes. Over the years Gipson also participated in mission campaigns to the Eluthra and Freeport in the Bahamas, Knott County Ky, Baxter TN, Rutledge TN, and Marmaduke AR.

Gispon’s foundation with Lord’s church began in Columbia Tn where he was raised in a strong Christian home. His father served as an elder at the West 7th church congregation and his mother who was a teacher at Columbia Academy, where he graduated. It continued with his marriage to Stephanie, a graduate from Lipscomb University.

They continue to work together for the Lord’s church as they raise their 3 children.  Claire, Will and little Caroline. The Baucum’s are a lot like you and me. They love spending time with their family, playing outdoors with their children and getting to know others.

We are very happy to have both Gipson and his lovely family worshiping and working with our congregation!
