Stephen Forester is from Lapeer, Michigan. He has a diverse and exciting ministry!
Stephen began traveling in 2008 with his brother Joshua. They were know as "The Forester Brothers". In July 2013, Joshua married Angela Gilson. and the group was re-organized as "The Forester Brothers Family". In November 2014, Stephen married Marie Arnswald, and she immediately joined the group.
In November of 2016, Joshua and Angela came off the road, after feeling a new calling from God to begin working with teens in their local church. The group was then reorganized as a husband and wife team.
Stephen and Marie were blessed with the birth of their son, Stephen II, on May 24th, 2017. They continued to travel full-time, while raising their baby on the road for over a year after that.
In October of 2018, the decision was made for Marie to step off the road to become a full time stay-at-home mommy. After much prayer, they announced this change in November, and Stephen began to move into solo ministry. In January 2020, their second son Michael was born.
