Forge Itinerant Speakers Set Hearts On Fire This Year!

Forge Speaker Team Growth 
Ahead of Pace for 50-Speaker Vision

Forge has grown from 12 to 26 itinerant speakers, and we’re outpacing our God-sized vision of increasing to 50 speakers in ten years. New Firebrand Speakers are helping us succeed!

50 highly trained, effective, and actively deployed Forge Speakers by 2025. That’s the bold and God-sized vision Forge committed to as a part of the 10-year plan set by the ForgeBoard of Directors.

“Unobtainable! Unrealistic! It’s just not possible!” We can see why some might make such statements. To be honest, it was a goal and vision that, at first, seemed a bit like starring at the wall around Jericho or looking skyward into the face of that giant named Goliath.
Still, we believe God called us to it. More so, we believe the God who calls also supplies. Our job isn’t to question but to trust, follow, obey, and do.

We knew the goal would require many people praying and the Forge Team constantly responding to God’s movement every step of the way. We’ve been as faithful as we know how in that strategy.

Now, four years into the vision God has laid before us, we are ecstatic to announce we’re actually ahead of schedule and halfway there!

What was 12 Forge Speakers when we began this adventure is now 26 Forge Speakers strong: 15 Forge Speakers and 11 Forge Firebrands in itinerant training.

The beautiful thing about God-sized visions is the unmistakable placement of who gets the credit. To that we say, “Great things God has done. Great things He is doing!”

Forge Speakers 300+ Years
Experience Has No Substitute

The combined know-how, delivery, and maturity of the Forge Speaker Team exceeds 300 years of experience. It’s a winning combination for hosts, event attenders, and on-boarding speakers.

When it comes to delicate surgery, court representation, retirement plans, or even a fine evening of dining—experience matters. We desire and depend on competent, seasoned, adaptable, qualified, and results-producing doctors, chefs, lawyers, and financial  planners.

How much greater, then, does experience matter in handling the Word of God, sharing the gospel, and tending to the everlasting souls of people?

At Forge, we have great confidence that God and His Kingdom is well represented every time a Forge Speaker or Firebrand hits the road or takes the stage. The 300 plus years of combined Forge Speaker experience pays huge Kingdom dividends—from our ability to engage with hosts, to the quality and dependability of messages that are shared, to the way speakers invest in speakers in training.
