He was born in Galveston, Texas and at the age of six months, the family moved to Brooklyn, New York. In 1977, he and his family relocated to Missouri City, Texas. Pastor Simpson graduated from Willowridge High School in 1981 and continued his education at Prairie View A&M University where he studied Business Marketing and pledged Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity. He accepted his calling to the Gospel Ministry in 1997 at Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church. Under the leadership and guidance of Pastor Leroy Houston, he served as an Associate Minister for five years.

In 2004, Pastor Simpson began his first year as Pastor of Pilgrim Journey Baptist Church. Since his tenure began, the attendance at Sunday morning worship services has increased from 48 to nearly 500 attendees and Bible Study has increased from 25 bi-weekly attendees to 150 weekly attendees.

In addition, Pastor Simpson has developed new spiritual programs including Strong Men for Christ, Young Men for Christ, Young Women for Christ, and a Pee-Wee Bible Study. Pastor Simpson's leadership is creative and innovative. His sermons and thought provoking Bible studies create a yearning for more of the Word of God.
