Bay Forrest

Those who have had the opportunity of sitting under Bay Forrest’s ministry have come away with encouraged hearts and an appreciation for his powerful, creative communication. Filling his messages with inspired stories from his years as a 6'10" NBA center for the Phoenix Suns and as a missionary in Kenya, East Africa, Forrest has a way of clearly presenting the gospel and challenging his audience to live a "sold out" life for Jesus Christ. With over 30 years of experience in ministry, Bay has spoken all across the US and in several countries, doing church services, youth conferences, family camps, men's retreats, college chapels and Christian school spiritual emphasis weeks.
