Tracy Simmons - Lead Pastor


Tracy is one of the pastors who established Christ Community Church, Alaska in 2002. In the years since, he has served the church as a worship pastor, administrative pastor, and lead pastor. Tracy's favorite moments in ministry are when people finally come face to face with God's love, and choose to love Him back. His beautiful wife, Karen, has worked alongside him for over 25 years, and both of his sons serve as part of the Worship Team. In addition to being a pastor, Tracy loves his family, stories and storytelling of every kind, music of nearly any sort, theatre as a spectator and an actor, and Mexican food. In fact, there is no more perfect food on the planet than Mexican food.
