Brian and Candice Simmons – Sun AM Aug 9
August 9 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
WHO is excited to welcome Brian & Candice Simmons to share their hearts with us on Saturday, August 8 7pm and Sunday, August 9 10am! All are welcome.
Dr. Brian Simmons is known as a passionate lover of God. After a dramatic conversion to Christ, Brian knew that God was calling him to go to the unreached people of the world and present the gospel of God’s grace to all who would listen. With his wife Candice and their three children, they spent eight years in the tropical rain forest of the Darien Province of Panama as a church planter, translator, and consultant. Brian was involved in the Paya-Kuna New Testament translation project. He studied linguistics and Bible translation principles with New Tribes Mission. After their ministry in the jungle, Brian was instrumental in planting a thriving church in New England (U.S.), and now travels full time as a speaker and Bible teacher.
Dr. Simmons is currently the lead translator for The Passion Translation Project, which will produce a new, dynamic version of the Bible that promises to shape the spirituality of coming generations. He has been happily married to Candice for forty-six years, and is known to boast regularly of his three children and six grandchildren.
As an expression of our love and support for Brian & Candice, we will be lifting a love offering for them during each service.
