Join us on 3 September February at 7am for the Men’s Breakfast as we hear from Gomeroi man and IPROWD founder Peter Gibbs.
Peter Gibbs was an indigenous rugby league star representing the Australian School boys, playing professional rugby league with the Sydney Roosters and living with the great Arthur Beatson. An incredible achievement for a young Gamollaroi boy from remote NSW. Soon though he found himself struggling with alcohol and the distractions of the city. Life would change forever for Peter in 1997 when his sister Fiona died in police custody. Riots were on the cards but Peter and his father resolved not to incite a violent response. It cost him though. Peter’s grief and anger toward the police led to alcohol abuse and suicidal thoughts. The turning point came when Peter accepted the forgiveness which Jesus offers and realised he had a greater purpose. Since then, Peter has established the IPROWD program to recruit and train indigenous Australians for the police force. Peter’s story speaks of the hurt and pain of life, the power of forgiveness and the way God met him and brought purpose and healing out of tragedy.
