Bay Forrest Bio
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, Bay has a way of clearly presenting the gospel and challenging his audience to live a “sold out” life for Jesus Christ. His passion for evangelism and a life of holiness comes across in an uncompromising and powerful way. One of Bay’s unique communication strengths is his ability to bridge the gap between adults and youth, making him a natural for audiences of all ages. 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.
Bay has written two devotional books based upon his experiences as an athlete, Winning is Everything (Surrendered to God), and Dunked On? Deal With It!, along with co-authoring Way to Grow!, with his wife, Peggy.
One of Bay’s favorite verses is 1 Corinthians 10:31 which says, “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” He lives by this verse and strives to bring glory to God in all that he does.
