Our Speaker:

James Forsyth is the Senior Pastor of McLean Presbyterian Church, located just outside of Washington, D.C. He grew up in Edinburgh, Scotland, where he graduated from the University of Edinburgh, before moving to the U.S. to study at Reformed Theological Seminary (RTS), Jackson. He is now a Guest Professor of Practical Theology at RTS Washington, D.C.

James is married to his high school sweetheart, Rosie, and is dad to Mia, Caleb, Seamus, and Isla. Formative experiences have included growing up in a strong, yet tender, family, being a college athlete, becoming a father at the age of 19, wrestling through a dark season of anxiety, and being shaped by a handful of key mentors. Throughout, God’s grace has been the theme – a theme that now animates his life and ministry.

In his free time, you might find James CrossFitting, supporting Man Utd., laughing too loudly with friends, grilling, playing guitar, or – at his happiest – enjoying his young family.

James Forsyth

 Here's a summary of James' message to us:

Foolproof: Sermons from the Book of Proverbs- In our culture, information abounds, but wisdom can be scarce. Wisdom can almost seem mystical or enigmatic, and yet, the Bible presents an earthy, practical picture with a God who has both perfect wisdom and perfect generosity to give us wisdom, if we just ask. Through these sermons we look at how we can navigate the complexities of life in light of God's grace and generosity toward us.
