Kent Simmons


As a second-career pastor, Kent uniquely identifies with the challenges of everyday life. As such, his messages are crafted to spiritually inspire and to relate to a wide range of individuals. With a Master's Degree in Liberal Arts in Pastoral Leadership from Grand Canyon University, Kent teaches with an emphasis on biblical application. And, with a full quiver of grown children and grandchildren to spare and married to his wife of 32 years, Susie, Kent's commitment to faith, family and friends is contagious.
