Interim Minister -

Dexter Simpson

I am the interim minister at First Christian Church, since December 2017. My role on our leadership team relates primarily to preaching and nurturing. My desire is to help all of us know the fullness of Christ’s love and share that love to Fort Thomas.

Who am I? My wife and I moved to the Cincinnati area ten years ago. We have four children so we spend a lot of time enjoying our family, whether around a dinner table or on a soccer field. I do not cheer for any local sports teams, except the Reds. I really want to see them win. I love delicious books and graceful food.

Favorite Scripture:
Seize life! Eat bread with gusto, Drink wine with a robust heart Oh yes—God takes pleasure in your pleasure! Dress festively every morning. Don’t skimp on colors and scarves. Relish life with the spouse you love Each and every day of your precarious life. Each day is God’s gift. It’s all you get in exchange For the hard work of staying alive Make the most of each one! Whatever turns up, grab it and do it. And heartily!
—Ecclesiastes 9:7-9

Interesting Fact:
I love beer. In fact, I just made two types of mead (blueberry and Mexican chocolate) for the first time. I am happy to let you try if you are brave enough.
