Sean Forrest began his ministry as a full-time youth minister at St. James parish in Stratford, Conn. In January of 2000, Sean founded Movin’ With The Spirit, Inc. (MWTS), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to boldly proclaiming God’s eternal Truth and love. Since then, he has had the opportunity to speak to hundreds of thousands of teens and adults across the country and internationally.
Sean is a graduate of Holy Apostles College and Seminary in Cromwell, Conn., where he does work as an instructor and retreat leader. In the coming year, he will again speak and perform at nearly 100 events — where he will continue to reach out to both the hearts and minds of his audiences, in keeping with the focus of Pope John Paul II’s Fides et Ratio (Faith and Reason).

Building on his organization’s work in the U.S., Sean has also mobilized a team to help the poor of Haiti. MWTS Haiti180 (haiti180.com) constructed and operates a lively orphanage and state-of-the-art school, and has been housing, feeding, and caring for children and villagers in desperate need of support. The organization is also in the process of building a medical clinic for the local and surrounding communities. Sean Lives in Connecticut with his wife and three children.
