From Dr. Forshee

I was raised in Alabama, where my immediate family still resides today. I graduated from Monroe Academy in Monroeville, Alabama in 1982 and the University of Mobile in Mobile, Alabama in 1986. While a student in college I committed my life to the Lord Jesus Christ.

My favorite verse in the Bible is Romans 10:9, "If you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." After graduating from college and getting married in 1986, Ashley and I moved to Fort Worth, Texas. I enrolled at Southwestern Seminary where I graduated with a Master's of Divinity degree in 1990 and a PhD degree in 1995.

The greatest blessing in my life besides my relationship with Jesus is my wife, Ashley, and three children: Hannah, Bryant, and Leighton. We are so proud of our children. All three love the Lord Jesus. We enjoy hanging out with each other and serving the Lord together at Great Hills Baptist Church in Austin, Texas.

My ministry passion is preaching the Word of God and seeing lives changed by the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I also enjoy encouraging and equipping the saints of God to share their faith with a lost and hurting world.

My personal hobbies include playing golf, exercising, and reading.
