Rev. Celia Simms
Rev. Evangelist Celia Simms was called, commissioned, and charged to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ from the age of 16. She answered God’s calling and has been fulfilling God’s purpose and destiny for her life the moment she stepped on the grounds of the Free Gospel Bible Institute in Pennsylvania.
Upon graduation from Free Gospel, she was immediately thrust into the harvest and served in short-term missions work in Antigua, Barbuda, and Jamaica, W.I. She also served as Youth Pastor at Bronxwood Int’l Church before moving on to serve as Co-Pastor at Hope International Worship Center, Bronx, NY. While at Bronxwood, she also served on the Choir, Praise and Worship Team, Under Shepherd Ministry and taught marriage classes.
Rev. Celia Simms serves with her husband in the local church but fulfills her mandate in doing the work of an evangelist beyond the church walls. She is an anointed preacher and teacher of God’s Word and has traveled extensively singing and preaching the gospel for the past twenty years. From Haiti to Ghana, South Africa, Europe, Canada, and the Caribbean many souls have come to know Christ as Savior. Her anointed message of healing, restoration, and transformation transcends cultural and denominational barriers. Evangelist Simms has a weekly radio broadcast entitled, “The Word Works” on Royal Radio 103.3 FM aired every Sunday morning at 8:00 a.m. (royalradio1033.com). She produced her first CD “Marked By Favor” and has a Master’s degree in Biblical Leadership & Expository Preaching from Trinity Theological Seminary.
