Dr. Brian Simmons
Dr. Brian Simmons is known as a passionate lover of God. After a dramatic conversion to Christ, Brian knew that God was calling him to go to the unreached people of the world and present the gospel of God’s grace to all who would listen. With his wife Candice and their three children, they spent eight years in the tropical rain forest of the Darien Province of Panama as a church planter, translator, and consultant. Brian was involved in the Paya-Kuna New Testament translation project. He studied linguistics and Bible translation principles with New Tribes Mission. After their ministry in the jungle, Brian was instrumental in planting a thriving church in New England (U.S.), and now travels full time as a speaker and Bible teacher. He is currently the lead translator for The Passion Translation Project which will produce a new, dynamic version of the Bible that promises to shape the spirituality of coming generations. He has been happily married to Candice for forty-six years and is known to boast regularly of his three children and six grandchildren.
Faces of Santa Ana was founded by Brian Peterson, an artist from Miami, Florida currently working as a car designer for Kia Motors in Irvine, CA.
Faces of Santa Ana is a passion project where we set out to befriend and paint portraits of the homeless community in Santa Ana, CA. We then sell the artwork and use proceeds to help in rehabilitating our newfound friends. The mission of Faces of Santa Ana is to locally help those in need in cities around the world while also inspiring and activating creatives and supporters of the movement. We believe that the creativity we’ve been given is meant for the outward pouring of love.
Tim Felker has pastored Father’s House OC in Huntington Beach, California since 2014 and has served in ministry for over 15 years in Orange County. He is the creator and founder of the IMPACT OC conference which started when it was first launched in June of 2015. Tim and his wife Havah also own a ceramic art school called Fired Up Arts and teach classes in Huntington Beach. Their heart for the body of Christ is to see unity, friendship and love for one another and they use creativity to go after these virtues to bring the body into greater faith in Jesus.
Tim was radically saved at the age of 17 in his home town of Huntington Beach and immediately started stepping into ministry, leading several of his own family members to Jesus. After becoming youth pastor, Tim was continually promoted within the church until finally becoming the senior pastor of Father’s House OC, the very church where he committed his life to Jesus 18 years earlier.
Tim’s long term vision is to continue to bring an impact through his church to transform Orange County by releasing new perspectives on identity in Christ. He is making an impact through creative strategies, empowering people and uniting churches to take cities for Jesus.
