MIKE FORNWALD

YOUTH & YOUNG ADULTS PASTOR

WHAT I DO

I love to sing planned spontaneous songs, listen to crazy overdramatic teens and build friendships that will last a lifetime. Jesus Loves My Songs! Really I PLAY HARD and PRAY HARD with Students and Young Adults.

SPOUSE

The Beautiful Jocelyn Fornwald.

CHILDREN

We have 4 children, Caleb is our 11 year old gentle giant, Abbi and Sadie are our 9 year old artistic twin gems and Solomon is 4 months old and has a great smile and laugh.

HOPE & VISION FOR AVC

Living out the 1st and 2nd commandment. A Revival Revolution. A community that is passionate for Jesus. Desiring the Kingdom of God above all else and engaging in the lives of people. A place where all are equal, welcome and desired. Loving the lost, seeing the saved get saved and a place where my kids can give, grow and receive.

HOW I GOT INVOLVED WITH AVC

11 years ago I got a phone call wondering if I would like to work with the AVC Youth, 5.5 years ago I got a text message wondering if I wanted to have pizza and discuss whether working with the AVC youth was an option again. I am a very Blessed Man to work with such amazing people.

THE BEST PART OF MY JOB

Watching students and young adults encounter, touch and meet with God and occasionally getting to be a part of it. I love watching students become Young Adults-Men and women who desire to share the Kingdom with each other, our students and the nations. Then there is going for coffees, laughing, being part of games and adventures that might make parents cringe; normal youth and young adults stuff.

A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS

Besides my God, Family and Friends. I enjoy drinking coffee, playing soccer and going skiing. Sitting on my deck reading in the sun and going to the auctions. There are deals everywhere I just need to find them.

HOME TOWN

Williams Lake BC, not Williams Lake, New York for those of you who were confused. Billy’s Puddle has the 2nd largest rodeo in Canada.

THREE THINGS ON MY BUCKET LIST

No need to have a bucket list when you are living life to the fullest. That’s a good answer, but because people want more than that. I would like to lead worship at the Vineyard on Sunday morning. Travel the world with my wife Jocelyn and be part of the revival that shakes the earth and people fall madly in love with Jesus!
