|Chris & Debbie Gibson|
|Pastoral care is a natural fit for Chris & Debbie as they readily come alongside everyone they meet,
bringing a cup of cool water for the soul. They have not retired from the pastorate butóafter many fruitful years in pastoral ministry are finally living
their original vision and calling: to join and encourage Christian leaders involved in cross-cultural ministry through soul care.
Chris has both a masterís degree in divinity and counseling, years of extensive experience on a church staff, and served as senior pastor for 10 years.
A decade ago Chris left his pastorate in the States when he and his wife felt the Lord calling them to use Chrisís counseling skills to help missionaries stay healthy, effective, and on the field. Living in Budapest, Hungary, they provide biblical counseling, mental health services and pastoral care to missionaries and their families from Europe, Central Asia, and the Middle East. Chris also provides leadership development and pastoral care for nationals. Debbie assists him through her gifts of hospitality, administration, and intercessory prayer at the beautiful Budapest Garden House, a tranquil place of rest and revitalization for Christian servants in need of renewal.
The Gibsons are grateful they can use their skills and the Budapest Garden House to serve Christians on the front line. Time spent with Chris and Debbie has given Christís servants protection, perspective, and practical tools to face struggles.
For wisdom and guidance with ongoing counseling to missionaries and their families, several coming from distant places.
For the Lord to bless several weekend retreats at the Budapest Garden House, especially the one for women and one for evangelist teachers in European schools.
For two situations involving missionary families with young children facing difficult issues which require the Gibsons to travel to where the missionaries serve.
