David Sims

Inner City Outreach

David was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma and has spent most of his life in Southwest Missouri. He said 'yes' to Jesus as Lord at the age of 21. Almost immediately, God gave him a burden for those who are the outcast of society. 'I worked for Christ wherever there was a need: as interim Youth Leader for the Assembly of God in Aurora, Missouri, leading bible studies at nursing homes, assisting pastors in small country churches, and evangelizing the lost in the inner city.'

For five years, David led a feeding program at a local park in Springfield during the summer for the homeless and struggling. This ministry, called ParkFest, provided a free meal and the message of Christ. In the Fall of 2008, Evangel Temple, with Davidís leadership, officially started Inner City Outreach. Each week the message of Christ is proclaimed, 250-300 free meals are served and, free groceries are distributed to over 160 families.

As of September 2011, a new church plant has been birthed-Embassy of Hope. David is Director of Inner City Outreach and oversees Embassy of Hope Church.
