We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
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.
Board of Directors
FOCUS Ministries is governed by a board of directors, who actively pray for the God-inspired direction of this ministry, wisely determine and economical and practical budget, challenge with expanding and seeking new horizons, and establish concrete guardrails of protection. The board is comprised of men and women from all over the United States, with varying occupations and ministries, who come to us from multiple denominational backgrounds; but, they are united as one in Christ and passionate in their support of FOCUS.
Not present for the picture is Dr. Richard Bransford.
What We Believe
FOCUS Ministries is committed to fulfilling it purpose and the great commission as stated in Matthew 28:18-20, Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Besides his normal speaking venues, Bay regularly serves in ministry together with 14-Guiness-World-Record-Holder, Joe Odhiambo. They are a dynamic team bringing the gospel message in a unique and creative fashion. Joe’s incredible abilities are the result of tremendous “focus,” yet Joe knows NOTHING is possible without his Savior. After all, the Lord is the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Obviously, Joe has an uncanny ability to draw in a crowd, and Bay loves nothing more than pointing them back to Jesus. That’s his specialty. Together they reflect the heart of developing a “Fresh Outlook Centering Upon the Savior!”
