Youth Pastor

Youth Pastor Bart Simpson

Bart Simpson is the Youth Pastor at Portland Church of the Nazarene. Bart also works and coaches at Portland High School. He is a graduate of Eastern Nazarene College.

Bart has been married to Lynn since December 31st, 1995 and has two sons, Jalon (currently at Olivet Nazarene) and Noah (in Portland Middle School).

He grew up in western Pennsylvania in a non-Christian home.   He is a product of a “Bus Ministry”, a church family that opened their doors and loved on him, and very active student ministry.   Bart played sports all through high school and college. The Lord’s hand used ENC’s faculty and strong Christian friendships to lead Bart into student ministry, where he has been serving for over 30 years.   Bart has served in “lay” and “full-time” student ministry positions while working within the Criminal Justice field.   He has planted, pastored, and preached in many different settings and services in the past, but God keeps opening doors and leading him back to his passion–student ministry.
