Thank you to all the volunteers and team leaders who took part in St. Stephen’s Church’s Youth Summer “Masked Missions” in June and in July. This year, as a result of the COVID-19 situation, both missions were held locally. Below are two videos that highlight how our young missionaries put their faith into action. Thank you!

Meet Pastor Forrest,  associate pastor for Youth,Young Adults, and Outreach

Pastor Forrest (yes, like Forrest Gump) grew up in the Methodist church as a pastor’s kid. He came to real faith in Jesus when as a Senior in High school in Hampton Roads where he was born and raised. He went on to major in Earth and Environmental Science at Virginia Wesleyan College, while being a part of ministry on campus and off with Younglife and others. He married the love of his life, Emilee, in 2018 on a hot July day. They met on a mission trip to Nicaragua. He loves Baseball and the Chicago Cubs! He is a fan of NC State and the Carolina Panthers. Pastor Forrest grew up at the beach, so he learned how to surf and skim board which came naturally having skate- and long-boarded for years. He enjoys video games because they connect him to old friends. He also enjoys hunting and other outdoor activities.
