Dr. Gushee, his beloved wife Jeanie and their regal cat Noah live in Atlanta, where they eagerly await visits from their grown children Holly (with her husband Jonathan), David and Marie, and their grandson Jonah. Dr. Gushee, an ordained Baptist Minister, attends First Baptist Church in Decatur with his wife, where he teaches a weekly Sunday School class; they also attend Holy Cross Catholic Church. David is a long-time Atlanta Braves fan, and still very much enjoys competing with his students and colleagues on the tennis court.
