Lincoln Gifford

Lincoln became a disciple in Boston almost 30 years ago. He and his wife, Irene, were members of the French Mission team, and their 3 children were born while overseas. They returned to the US in 1992 so Lincoln could continue his career as a systems engineer and complete his MBA. They were key members of the group that planted the Hartford church in 1994. Lincoln has served in many ways for the Hartford church ever since, including children’s ministry coordinator, deacon, director, and most recently, elder. All of Lincoln’s children are disciples: Sarah (age 26), Emma (age 24) and Daniel (age 22).
