Molly Simpson

I am the Executive Pastor of Worship and Campuses at First Methodist. I grew up in the Kansas City area and made my way to Waco to attend Baylor University. I attended this church as a college student, and it is a blessing to come back in a pastoral leadership role.


My husband Ben and I have been married since 2003 and have two elementary-age children, and daughter and a son. We love the Kansas City Royals, spending time together outdoors, and hosting guests in our home.


I like having conversations over good coffee, lifting weights at the gym, and listening to live music. I love sharing the love of Jesus Christ with people, in word and in action, and I love my job! 


I have a Bachelor of Arts in Biology from Baylor University (2002) and a Master of Divinity from Perkins School of Theology, SMU (2006).
