Favorite Bible verse: Hebrews 6:19 AMP, “This hope [this confident assurance] we have as an anchor of the soul [it cannot slip and it cannot break down under whatever pressure bears upon it]—a safe and steadfast hope that enters within the veil [of the heavenly temple, that most Holy Place in which the very presence of God dwells],”

How long have you attended Forward? My family and I have consistently attended Forward since we moved back to the area 4 years ago. We attended anytime we were in town in the years prior to that.

How long have you been on staff? I’ve been on staff for 3 years.

In what ways do you volunteer at Forward? I play bass guitar on the worship team. I also love to serve at our Outreach events and for our annual Harvest Homecoming Clean-up. When opportunities arise I’ve enjoyed speaking at events and leading classes as well.

Tell us about a time that was especially meaningful for you in your time of ministry at Forward. Mine’s not a specific time, but I love being a part of a church family that fervently prays for each other. I love seeing people come to the altar during Invitation to lay everything at Jesus’ feet. Then you not only see Pastor Neil or Pastor Blake come up to pray over them, but sometimes you see a whole crowd of people who come to join in lifting the person’s needs and lives up to God as well. We’re a church, a family, that believes in and knows the power of prayer and that’s something meaningful to me. 


1 Peter 4:10, “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace:”

Why We Give How to Give

Chest Of Joash

The Chest of Joash provides an opportunity to give above and beyond the normal tithe. The money from it goes directly to work needed done on our building.

In 2 Chronicles 24 we find Joash repairing the temple and a chest was set outside of it for people to bring a tithe that was used to pay the workers restoring the temple. Verse 10 says, “And all the princes and all the people rejoiced and brought their tax and dropped it into the chest until they had finished.”

A huge THANK YOU to all of you who have joyfully donated just as the Israelite officials and people did!

With money that has been raised in the Chest of Joash over the past 3 years ($50,089 since January 2017!), we have been able to

  • Build a ramp off of our sidewalk for those with a handicap
  • Dedicate parking spots in our parking lot with Handicap and First Time Visitor signs
  • Seal our roof to repair several leaks
  • Paint the exterior of the building along with the barn wood design and Forward Church signage
  • Build classrooms in our back hallway for Bible studies and other classes to take place
  • Pave and stripe our parking lot
  • Currently working on expanding our worship space to provide room for more people (this was always the plan for this area but especially necessary now under COVID-19 response guidelines)
