About the Owners

Tim and Erin Gibson
Both Tim and Erin are graduates of Asbury (College) University, Wilmore. Tim and Erin are the full time owner/managers at Solomon’s Porch Cafe. Originally, they are from out of state, Tim from Northfield, New Jersey, and Erin from Sewickley, Pennsylvania.
Tim has a heart for troubled youth, having served as a youth pastor for several years during high school and college, and graduating from Asbury with a degree in Christian Ministries in 2001. Tim previously worked for Metro Group Homes, a non-profit youth shelter in Lexington. Tim still feels this passion for young people and hopes to some day coordinate/run a Horse  and Agriculture Ministry for troubled youth and adults  right here in the Bluegrass.
Erin graduated from Asbury in 2002 with a degree in Sociology. She loves to cook, bake, garden, and make jewelry.
Tim and Erin took over ownership of Solomon’s Porch in July 2004. It has been a dream they shared together since they were dating. It is truly God’s prompting that led them into ownership 12 years ago. They are excited about the ministry possibilities of Solomon’s Porch as well as the Development of small business in the small town of Wilmore.
Tim and Erin have one son,  Braden , who is 10 years old.  Outside of work, they are fixing up their 90 year old home in Wilmore, restoring a 65 acre farm and lead a middle school youth group at Oasis Community Church in Nicholasville.    They have 2  rescued  Thoroughbred horses: Cousteau, and Dew Drop and 2 ponies: Millie and Scout. They recently added four lovely barn cats: Dovie, Baxter, Buttons and Fred.   They hope to lovingly restore the horses and Hopeful Hills farmstead in order to use them for ministry .
