Forest became the pastor of Mogadore Baptist Church in April of 2020. Previously he served as an associate youth pastor at First Baptist Church in LaGrange, OH, (2004-2014) where he met his bride Jody. In 2014 he transitioned to First Baptist Church in Brunswick, OH where he served as the solo pastor.
Forest gave his life to Christ at the dining room table with his mother when he was only four years of age and was baptized at the age of five. Although saved at young age, looking back he can see the gracious hand of God leading and guiding his life. He graduated from Wellington High School in 2000, Cedarville University in 2004, finished his Masters degree from Baptist Bible Seminary in 2022.
Forest & Jody have four children: Evelyn, Hunter, Jocelyn, and Cole.
