Minister of Education and Administration
Damon Simpson was born and raised in Borger, Texas in the middle of the Texas Panhandle. After graduating from Borger High School, Damon attended Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, Texas, receiving his Bachelor’s Degree in Behavioral Science with a minor in Religious Education. He later attended Seminary at Logsdon School of Theology, also in Abilene, receiving a Master of Arts in Family Ministry.
At the age of 15, Damon surrendered to the ministry and has been in full-time vocational ministry since 1995. First Baptist Porter is fortunate to have Damon as Associate Pastor and Minister of Education and Administration since 2007.
Damon married his high school sweetheart, Terri Clark in 1991 after being apart all through their college years. Terri earned her Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics with a minor in Education from Southern Nazarene University in Bethany, OK. Terri stayed home to raise their children for 16 years before returning to work in 2012 teaching upper level math in Kingwood, Texas. The Simpson’s have been blessed with two children, Brennen, 17 and Kali, 14.
When Damon isn’t performing ministerial work, he enjoys watching his children play high school sports. Brennen plays baseball and Kali plays volleyball, basketball and softball. But even more than that, Damon loves that both kids serve the Lord, are active in church and aren’t afraid to share the gospel.
It is Damon’s belief that salvation is by grace, through faith, in Jesus Christ alone. And his love for God is self evident in the Bible verse he claims. “May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to You, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.” Psalm 19:14
