"I HAD NO IDEA WHICH DIRECTION I SHOULD GO...

I had no idea which direction I should go when God told me to get out of the Air Force, but my time in The Forge allowed God to write on my blank slate so He could direct me into my next season. Not only did I enjoy the Forge immensely, I learned what it meant to be in covenant with God and embrace, on a personal level, all He had done for me.   Enrolling in The Forge has really been one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life."

"The Forge has affected every aspect of my life! 

Most importantly, having accountability and Biblical teaching has helped me learn who God really is, and that He's not just who I "think" He is. Learning to have such a close relationship with Jesus has transformed my role in my marriage, my parenting, my friendships and my career. If you are even slightly interested​, make it happen and DO IT!  The Forge changes lives!"
