More about Rev. Andrew Forrest

The Rev. Forrest is a third-generation Methodist minister. He is a pastor at Munger Place United Methodist Church (UMC) in Dallas, Texas. He has been a pastor at Munger Place UMC since it was planted in 2010 by nearby Highland Park UMC.

While he was in seminary, he had hopes of preaching at a new church. When Paul Rasmussen, who is now the Senior Minister at Highland Park UMC, told him of a position opening at the new Munger Place UMC, he embraced the opportunity.

Munger is an eclectic congregation with an engaging “Come and See” spirit and a deep appreciation for its neighborhood. With The Rev. Forrest’s leadership, the new congregation has experienced remarkable growth. Munger has an average Sunday worship attendance of more 1,100 per week, with half of the church members having had no previous church affiliation.

“My favorite thing about the Munger congregation is the genuine sense of excitement and gratitude on Sundays,” says the Rev. Forrest. “We are grateful to see each other, grateful for another week of life, and grateful to sing and pray in our beautiful church. There’s nothing like it.”

He was raised in West Africa and Virginia, which may be why he is most passionate about the intersection of faith and culture. The Rev. Forrest has a well-followed blog, andrewforrest.org, where he discusses this topic as well as many others.

He has an undergraduate degree from Columbia University in New York City, and he received his graduate degree from Southern Methodist University in Dallas.
