Pastor Mikal + Sarah SimmonsSenior Pastor
I was born in Mitchell, SD and raised in Brandon SD. I am the sixth of nine children and eight of them are boys. My wife, Sarah, and I have three children. In my younger days, I felt God calling me to ministry but I ignored the call for many years of my life. During my high school days I excelled in football, wrestling, and track. And I ultimately took a football scholarship to SDSU.

Pastor Nicki + Chris Smosna
Pastor Nicki + Chris SmosnaKids Ministry
I was born in Avon, SD and I am the youngest of three. I am married to Chris and we have two beautiful kids. I am thankful that I was raised in a household centered around God. I attended a good news club in my hometown, and at the age of 8, I came to know the Lord. I have been through some challenging moments in this life, and God has been so faithful. When I was babysitting at the age of 15, I just knew that I wanted to be a mom. I just love working with kids and that led me to later own/operate my own daycare! But it was after I was baptized in the Holy Spirit that God called me to do even more with that passion.

Thankfully, I had chosen the right friends to lead me in the right direction. I accepted Christ at a Youth for Christ rally when I was 15.
