About Pastor Gary

Gary Simons was born in Cape Town on 11 July 1973. He is the youngest son of 6 born to his parents Desmond, a powerful evangelist and Jennifer Simons a faithful intercessor who reared him in the ways of The Lord. As a boy, Gary regularly assembled his brothers and sisters to “play church” in their living room. The reality is that God had placed a desire in him to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and pray for the sick even before he was born.

Whilst traveling from work in a train the Holy Spirit over shadowed him. His entire body was shaking under the Power of God and in an instant, in a suburban line train his life was transformed forever. A few days thereafter, Gary made his commitment with the Lord at a Church service in a Hall. He understood the meaning of Grace and was filled with the ONE who would forever guide and change his life and destiny.

With the glorious salvation of The Lord, two days later he started to preach the gospel on the trains and after a few years, the Lord called him into full time ministry. During that time he attended Bible College to increase his knowledge. His heart was then filled with a desire to reach those who needed Jesus.

About the Ministry

Twenty years ago and under the direction of his best friend, The Holy Spirit, Gary Simons was led to start an outreach ministry called “Gary Simons Ministries”. The mandate of this ministry is to reach all nations for Jesus Christ.

He started preaching in various churches and civic centres in Cape, and was later led by the Lord to host Open Air Crusades that drew crowds of more than 3000 people per service in other areas like Kimberley, Mokopane and Hammanskraal. He has also had the privilege of ministering to crowds in excess of 20 000 people over 4 days in a stadium in Upington.

Although Gary has ministered in the United States of America and God has opened international doors for the Gary Simons Ministries to as many as 13 different countries, Gary has a heart for the lost and is passionate about reaching those in Africa first.

God uses Gary to flow in Signs, Wonders and Miracles and when he leads the wonderful saints of God into worship, the Presence, Anointing and the Power of God is overwhelming and very evident. As he preaches the word of God people receive healing and miracles take place in Jesus Name!

His passion for the work of the Lord drives him and his desire to see people saved, healed and delivered, fulfills him. A man of faith in God, saying “Here I am Lord, send me!”

The ministry aims to form strong partnerships and believes in working with other ministries in the Body of Christ to extend the Kingdom of God. We saw God accomplish this by opening the door for Pastor Gary to become an official Missionary to Trinidad and Tobago in 2015 and has since travelled there at every available occasion to further the cause of Christ in Trinidad and Tobago.
