Taking their three children to the jungle of Central America, they pioneered church plants for many years with the Kuna people group. While serving as missionaries, Dr. Simmons planted churches and established leadership for the churches that Jesus birthed. As a linguist, Brian also served on a team to translate the New Testament into the Paya-Kuna language.

After their ministry overseas, Brian and Candice returned to North America, where Brian began to passionately work toward helping people encounter the risen Christ and His story of redemption. Brian and Candice birthed numerous ministries, including a dynamic church in Connecticut. They also established Passion & Fire Ministries, under which they travel as Bible teachers in service of local churches throughout the world.
