Pastor Chris

Pastor Kevin C. Smith is the founder and visionary of Simply Amazing Ministries located in Athens, Alabama. He is the youngest son of Joe and Alice Marie Smith. Pastor Smith was called to ministry in 1992 at Victory World Outreach Ministries, under the leadership of Pastor Bobby R. Sledge and Lady Amy Sledge. He served there faithfully for over 19 years in the following capacities, Armor Bearer, President of the Men’s department, President of Evangelism, 1st Personal Assistant to the Pastor, and 2nd Assistant Pastor. He was later licensed as an ordained Elder in the Church Of God In Christ. Having received his mandate from God, Pastor Smith founded Simply Amazing Ministries a non-denominational ministry that believes and operates in the fivefold ministry in 2004. He started out conducting a Bible Study in the city of Athens and in 2006 he obeyed the Lord and began holding Sunday services.

Pastor Smith has a tremendous passion for God’s word coupled with a sincere love for God’s people. He is anointed to preach, teach and minister the Word of God. His vision is uncompromisingly clear, with one central principle; to see God's people healed, delivered, and set free. His divine assignment is to save the lost, preach deliverance to those who are bound, and to empower God's people to walk in their predestined power and authority, holding firmly to the commissioned mandate in Luke 4:18 “Setting at liberty them that are bound.”

In March 2011, God blessed Simply Amazing Ministries purchased an 11,000 square foot facility on 4 acres that will provide opportunities to grow and develop new ministries, programs and partnerships. He has been married to First Lady Christal Smith and is the proud father of three beautiful gifts from God; Christina, Lorena, and Caitlin.
