Joe Simon Ministries, Bishop Joe Simon Community Crusade, and Joe Simon Community Outreach evolved as a result of a vision that was put into action. The ministry is a messenger with a message and a program carried out by believers. The message is God’s word, based on Biblical scripture, preaching, praying, and lifting voices, making joyful noises in sermons, prayer, and songs. This vision was conceived during and after the realization that this is God’s world and we all are children of God by creation. Motivated by this realization and inspired to do something constructive, Joe Simon Ministries was born. The ministry is very simple, to preach God’s word, encourage each one of us to love one another, care for one another, and pursue peace within our hearts, our minds, our communities, and the world in which we live. In the words of a Prophet, “He hath shewed thee, o man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?” (Micah 6:8).
