Youth Ministry


My name is Doug Forsythe and I serve as the Youth Director at Montevallo First Baptist Church. I also work at the University of Montevallo in the grounds department. I am originally from a little town in Michigan just off of Lake Huron. I am married to the beautiful Krysti McNeil. I am a Shelby County High School graduate, and also a graduate from Liberty University where I received a Bachelors Degree in Biblical Studies. 

As the Youth Director at Montevallo First Baptist I have been gifted with the honor to disciple students straight from the word of God. I find that this honor is more of a command from the great commission which states that we are to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. It is my goal and God given task to lead students in not only learning about Jesus but introducing them to Him as their personal savior. It is my prayer for these students as well as the church that we will continue to grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ, and share the gospel, to the Montevallo community, and the rest of the world. If there is ever anything that I can do to serve you or your students please don't hesitate to call me here at the church or send an email to I look forward to serving you and your students.
