Gene Tibbs

Campus Ministry Staff

Gene Tibbs (aka “Baba” Gene Tibbs and “Nana Kwabena Nyamekye Agyeman I”) reaches out to students at the Community College of Allegheny County, Allegheny Campus, Community College of Allegheny County, Boyce Campus, the University of Pittsburgh

“I love having the opportunity-turned-reality of transforming the lives of students who, in turn, leave an indelible mark on the world for the sake of the Kingdom of God,” says Gene. “Campus ministry for me involves the sheer delight and personal fulfillment of exercising and displaying my gift and skill sets, resulting in transformative moments—for others as well as for myself. Like Eric Liddell in Chariots of Fire:  ‘…when I run, I feel His pleasure.’

“New Vision Fellowship Pittsburgh (NVFP) is the multi-campus network by which I serve small but growing groups of students and their activities on respective campuses. Contact me as listed; I provide the most up-to-date info regarding in-flux plans, projects and programs.

“Kobina Nyametse Agyeman is my honorary Akan name bestowed through ceremonial rite, December 29, 2012 (as gift for my 50th birthday on January 1, 2013) by the family of Queen-Mother of Esikuma Tarkwa, Nana Aena Ponkuah II, of Ghana's Western Region, represented by her children—daughter Maame Esi Tekyiwa and her son Jojo Amprofi Akroja--a former Pitt student whom I served as mentor throughout both his undergrad and grad years.”
