|Dr. Jo Forrest
Senior Pastor, Head of Staff
Jo Forrest began serving Westminster Presbyterian Church in 2021. Prior to accepting God’s call to ministry, she worked for several decades in corporate consulting in the financial services industry helping clients either find stability following market tumult or operational crises or invigorate their businesses that had grown complacent.
Fourth Presbyterian in Chicago nurtured her call to ministry where she returned for her first call to interim ministry. She later served Kenilworth Union Church in the northern suburbs of Chicago.
Jo earned a Master of Liberal Arts and Master of Divinity at the University of Chicago and a Doctorate in Ministry from The Candler School of Theology of Emory University.
Jo and her husband, Hamish, have led pilgrimages in Canada, Israel, Scotland, and Spain and look forward to the freedom to safely travel again, hiking through mud, praying in the fields, and serving in mission.
