Student Ministry  Pastor –
Drew Simmons
Drew  loves doing youth ministry, especially here in Doniphan!   Drew was raised in church and accepted Christ as  his Savior  and was baptized, “in the muddy Black River”, at a  young age. 
In 2010, he married Brittany and  together they decided they were going to put Christ first in  their marriage. Brittany is such a great help to Drew in the ministry and in life.
Drew’s passion in life is to lead youth to Christ and disciple them on their faith walk.
He and Brittany also co-own Marble Slab Creamery in Poplar Bluff and have blessed several churches, (especially ours) with Ice Cream socials.
Drew’s favorite scripture is Romans 1:16 ” For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.”
