Meet This Year’s Speaker:
Dr. Faith Simpson is a 1976 graduate of Atlanta Christian College. She serves beside her husband David Simpson (1977 graduate of Atlanta Christian College) at Lanier Christian Church in Gainesville, Georgia, as the worship leader. Their marriage of 42 years is equal to their years of ministry at Lanier Christian Church. Their son John Simpson and daughter Joy Griffin were both students of Atlanta Christian College who also minister at Lanier Christian Church, and lead in the education and non-profit community of Gainesville, Georgia. They also have a wonderful son-in-law, daughter-in-law and have three grandchildren (Jacob, Rhett and Mary Evan, who are the three most talented, smartest and, not to mention cutest, grandchildren in the whole world).
Dr. Simpson is currently assistant principal at Gainesville Middle School. Her career in educat
ion spans nearly 40 years, including teaching Old Testament history, New Testament history and ethics in a public school system. She coached softball, basketball and track at Gainesville High School and Gainesville Middle School. She began her career in administration, obtaining her doctorate in education in administrative supervision from Liberty University. Dr. Simpson served as assistant principal at both Banks County Middle School and Banks County High School, where she was also athletic director. Her accomplishments include participating in six state
championships and creating an academically-successful transition program for freshmen.
Her passion for guitar and vocal performance has allowed many years of service to the Lord. Dr. Simpson and Melanie Terrell (1985 graduate of Atlanta Christian College) have led worship together for the past 34 years. While a student at ACC, she participated in concert choir as well as small ensembles. She was also president of the ACC Student Council and a member of the women’s basketball team.
Dr. Simpson has recently been given the honor of serving as trustee of Point University. God has always directed her steps, and her passion in life is to serve beside and help to guide those he places in her path.
