Justin Simmonds

High School Coordinator

Justin works with the High School ministry at Prairie Lakes Church, Cedar Falls Campus to reach students in the community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  As an extension of the mission at Prairie Lakes Church, the High School ministry seeks to create an environment, specifically for High School students, where they can safely search for God.  Through the development of the High School HouseGroups, we hope to cover our communities with gatherings of High School students where they can meet Jesus–maybe for the first time!  

Justin has been married to his wife Angelica since June of 2017.  They are high school sweethearts from St. Charles, Illinois and are very excited to call Iowa their new home.  Angelica works as an elementary school teacher, so it safe to say that the Simmonds family deeply cares about the next generation!
