I am in good standing with my current congregation in North MS of the past five years. I am looking to get closer to aging in-laws with health problems to help alleviate some of their burden. My current congregation knows I am looking to get closer to family.

I was raised in the Church. My father, Darrell Simon, preaches for the Harrisburg, IL church of Christ. My grandfather was an elder in Henderson, KY. My father-in-law, Tony Demonbreun, preaches for the Friendship church of Christ in Toney, AL.

I love the outdoors. Hobbies: grilling and smoking meats, bird watching, gardening, fishing, playing games with my family.

I am very jolly, always ready to listen. If a question or decision, or a need arises, we will reason the scriptures together to find the best way to handle it (Acts .17:2). Brethren, I love people, the outdoors, riding my bicycle, and going to the gym. I ride my Harley (if weather permits) to do my visiting of the sick, shut ins, door knocking, and going to the hospital. My family is so important to me. They have been there for me in good times, as well as times of difficulty and I will always be there for them. I love animals, the outdoors, I work everyday to some degree on my sermons, lessons, memory verses and Bible studies, and this is by choice, for it is my greatest love.

Preferred Geographic Region(s): It really doesn't matter.


1. Graduate of the Memphis School of Preaching.
2. Many courses from the Sunset School of Preaching
3. Mostly my education has come from over thirty years of on the job training, and personal daily Bible studies.

Work Experience:

I have been a gospel preacher for over twenty five years. I am very active as a community evangelist. I have trained many to be personal workers. I have hosted radio, internet, and television programs, and I have been highly involved in prison work and due to this work, I have baptized hundreds into Christ. All my lesson, sermons will be Bible centered, and If I cannot back it up with scripture, I will not preach, nor teach it. I’m presently presenting four power point lessons per. week, and all my sermons are, and will be top-self. There is nothing on earth that I love more than being one of God’s preachers. I feel as Jeremiah said; “they word is as fire in my bones, and I cannot contain it” (Jer.20:9).

Marital Status/ Family: Married with three children

I have been preaching since 1976 when I graduated from Memphis School of Preaching. At times I have supported myself by plumbing and other work. I am currently partially retired but still working many hours per week in World Bible School ministry and promoting mission work in Malawi. This work is producing great results but I also want to be in the pulpit more. For this reason and because I need more income I am looking for a small church that would be happy to put me to work in the pulpit and classes.

Preferred Geographic Region(s): Texas, Tennessee, or other southern states

Paul wrote to Timothy, “Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching…But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry” (2 Timothy 4:2,5).

I have an urgent desire to do that work, evangelizing the lost and encouraging the church.
