Associate Pastor

Dave Gipson joined the North Naples Baptist Church team in October 2021.

Dave has served in full-time ministry for 30+ years. He is a husband, father, and pastor. But at heart, he’s a storyteller.

Dave has lived a reckless faith. He’s embraced the challenges of the Chicago and St Louis inner cities. He’s also ministered to murderers behind bars, worked with the homeless, and people struggling with addiction. And as an adoptive father of 5 multi-racial children, he believes in saying “yes” to God, no matter what.

Dave’s also a lover of people and an avid collector of friendships, even those who disagree with him.
