Silas Bowden

When Silas isn’t in the gym or embarking on adventures he is meeting new people. His life was radically transformed when he met Christ on a mountain top—in that moment he found his purpose. He uses his God-given gifts to intentionally pursue relationships with others to encourage and reveal Jesus to them.

Silas was born and raised in Northern Michigan, a land of lakes and corn. Hardworking, passionate, fearless, and adventurous, are all words that can be used to describe Silas. He walks through life with the confidence that, although things don’t always go according to plan, God somehow always uses them for good. Beyond that, he has an excellent listening ear, always going out of his way to check up on others. You can always count on him for a good laugh or a shoulder to lean on. His personality lights up a room. His heart for God is best expressed when he is placed in the company of others; this is where you can find him asking to hear someone’s story. He has the ability to recognize the God-given gifts someone has been given (and is not afraid to let others know whether or not they are using those gifts to the best of their abilities). He is a great encourager and always wants to see others fully live into who God has made them to be.

Silas is incredibly excited to be a part of the Forge staff. He is looking forward to being able to further the kingdom through the opportunities ahead and the doors that God opens.
