Pastor Anthony Simmons was born and raised in Kodiak, Alaska. He spent the first part of his life working in the logging and commercial fishing industries, but secretly his life was quickly spinning out of control with an addiction to alcohol and drugs. God supernaturally delivered Anthony from this lifestyle.
Pastor Anthony attended Seattle Bible College soon after, later earning a Bachelor of Theology. In downtown Seattle, he started an outreach to the homeless and Skyline Community Church. Pastor Anthony married Lori Simmons, and they now live in Fond du Lac, WI and have five children. Lori has led children's ministry, women's ministry and several drama productions.
