Pastor Rae Simpson
New Jerusalem Community Church of Sierra Vista
Pastor Rae Simpson is the Co-Pastor & First Lady of New Jerusalem Community Church located in Sierra Vista, Arizona. Pastor Rae is a licensed and ordained minister of the Gospel. She is an awesome woman of God training up both sons and daughters in ministry to “find the hidden nuggets of God’s Word.” As Pastor & 1st Lady of NJCC, it is not enough for one to just know what is on the surface but one must also see what is beneath. She has committed herself to looking into the whole of God’s Word with a passion to walk after His Spirit. She is anointed and appointed to deliver God’s Word to the bruised of spirit, the lost sheep of the world, and to all who will listen to the call of Christ Jesus.
She says, My favorite scripture is how I know that God can and will work on all of us. Philippians 1:6 records these words: “being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” More importantly, she truly loves the one she preaches about, and that is Jesus Christ the Son of the Living God. One thing that can be said about her life is that she has learned to trust in the Lord her God and encourages others to seek and sustain their own intimate walk with Christ.
She received a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and a Master’s Degree in Organizational Management. She is currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Theology.
Pastor Rae and her husband, Bishop T.L. Simpson, along with their two children, Keana and Ciarra and a granddaughter, Amaya, have lived in the Desert Southwest for many years. Pastor Rae takes great pleasure in the upbringing of their two children and she especially enjoys being alongside her husband in the ministry and would not change a thing or have it any other way. The two of them have been in ministry together for over 15 years. They share a passion to serve God in spirit and also in truth.
