Pastor of Teaching & Discipleship
Steve came on staff in 2008 and served as youth pastor for seven years before stepping into his current role in 2015. Steve's desire in ministry is to see Christians grow to be more Christ-like. His goal is to help believers connect their faith to their everyday lives and learn what it means to really have a relationship with God. He seeks to help the body of Christ recognize the important roles they hold as members of the body of Christ and as ambassadors of Christ to the unsaved around them.

She desires to see young people be convinced of Christ and devote their lives to him. 

Gary Hudson

Gary joined us as a Pastoral Intern in May of 2023 and will be serving with us for 16 months. As a church that desires to equip people for ministry, we also want to identify men who desire pastoral ministry and help equip them for that calling. Gary will be gaining training and experience as he serves in a pastoral role at Forward. He is passionate in discipling and walking alongside other men as they seek to follow Jesus.
