We recognize our faith was never intended to be lived out in isolation, but sharpened, encouraged, and strengthened by “one another” (Rom. 12:4-5; 1 John 4:11; 1 Peter 3:8)
We believe that intentional paths lead to intended destinations. As we intentinonalize missional service we do so for the purpose of building meaningful relationships within our community (Rom. 12:1-2; Matt. 5:13-16).
We believe this commission is not simply an addition to our schedule but rather a part of who we are. It is our desire to mobilize our people to actively make disciples where they live, work, and play (Matt. 4:19-20, 28:18-20; Luke 6:40; John 8:31-32; 2 Tim. 2:2).

–Gary Irby, Director of Church Planting, Northwest Baptist Convention

That’s why our church is sponsoring them and yours should too!

“There are few individuals I would more readily follow, join, or support in church planting than my younger brother Will Forrest. I have watched as God has called and prepared him for this journey since he was a teenager. Will desires to live a life giving glory to God and following his commissioning to make disciples. I look forward to seeing how God will use the obedience of his family in planting and cultivating Summit Life in the greater Seattle area.”
– Dr. Benjamin K. Forrest, Ed.D. Department Chair, Liberty University School of Divinity.
“God has uniquely prepared and gifted Will and Tiffany to plant a reproducing church that will reach the Issaquah community as well as the greater Seattle area. I highly recommend any church that is seeking to partner with a well-equipped planter and team to consider partnering with Will and Tiffany to plant Summit Life Church in one of the least evangelized areas in North America.”
–Zach Nelson, Executive Director, The Pillar Network for Church Planting
