Simon was born and raised in a military Christian household and move around to many places growing up. Simon attended Georgia Tech for his undergrad, where he found Journey Church of Atlanta. Flourishing in highly competitive environments, Simon placed his identity in perfection. When that was stripped away, feeling worthless, and unlovable, God relentlessly pursued Simon and wouldn't let him go, no matter how much Simon tried to escape God. Through this unconditional and undeserving love, Simon decided to devote himself to serving God through Journey Church in 2015. Simon's long term ministry goal is to open up a school in an third world country which will house orphans as well as provide missionary opportunities.
