Rev. Dr. Alicia Simpson
Founder & CEO

 Pastor Simpson, or Dr. Simpson was called upon the Lord to the ministry at 16 years old. Knowing this was one thing, however answering the call whole-heartedly was more like second nature. When you are walking in alignment with what God has for you it may feel difficult at times, because the tricks of the enemy never cease. 

With a background in Health Care, and a doctorate in Health Administration Pastor Simpson is an avid ally of assisting individuals to reach their educational goals, not only in the secular world, but also with the lord. Educating Gods people with bible studies, sunday school classes, creating teaching guides even creating a course called 'bible 101' Pastor Simpson is here to help His people to learn and understand, from Biblically-based teaching, for themselves. 

Let the Lord use you! AMEN!
