Brian and Candice have been described as true pioneers in ministry. As a spiritual father and mother, their teaching and spiritual gifts have opened doors in many nations to take the message of authentic awakening and revival to many. For the last 40 years they have labored together to present Christ in His fullness wherever God sends them. Dr. Simmons is currently working as the lead translator of The Passion Translation on course to release a leather-bound version of the New Testament/Psalms/Proverbs/Song of Songs in 2017.
After a dramatic conversion to Christ in 1971 Brian and Candice answered the call of God to leave everything behind and become missionaries to the tribes. Taking their three children to the jungle of Central America, they pioneered church plants for many years with the Kuna people group. While serving as missionaries, Dr. Simmons planted churches and established leadership for the churches that Jesus birthed. As a linguist, Brian also was the co-translator for the Kuna New Testament.
