About Us

Pastor Kevin Christopher Smith was born in Florence, Alabama, on May 18, 1972, the youngest of four children. His proud parents are Joe Louis Smith, Sr., and Alice Marie Smith. Pastor Smith accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior at the young age of seventeen. Three years later he accepted his calling to Preach the Gospel. He served faithfully under the leadership of his Pastor and mentor Elder Bobby R. Sledge for nineteen years. He was ordained an Elder under Pastor Sledge’s tutelage.

On May 18, 1992 the Lord spoke to Elder Smith and gave him the name Simply Amazing Ministries. God revealed to him that he would Pastor one day and the purpose of the ministry would be to set at liberty those that are bound and the name was just a foreshadow, because the things that God would ultimately do through the ministry would be "simply amazing."

Years later that vision would begin to unfold, and after much fasting and praying, the Lord spoke to Elder Smith and told him to start a Bible Study in Athens, Alabama. He stepped out in faith with his wife Christal, their three daughters and just a handful more and he started conducting Bible Study at the Woodmen of the World Insurance building. The first Bible Study was held on September 1, 2004 and shortly after the Lord spoke to Pastor Smith and told him to begin a Sunday service. Simply Amazing Ministries held their official service on February 5, 2006. God confirmed his word with signs following and God opened the doors for Simply Amazing ministries to move to their own location. On March 25, 2007 Simply Amazing Ministries held their first service at their new location. People have been healed, delivered and set free through this ministry and the best is yet to come for Simply Amazing Ministries. Join us as we worship:
