Susan Forehand

Minister to Empty Nesters & Women

Susan has served on staff at Shades more than 40 years. She provides leadership and direction to our women's ministry and to some of our Adult Sunday School classes! Susan believes women are simple, yet complicated; brave but unsure; adventurous but cautious; transparent but hidden; confident but uncertain; strong but gentle. Yet all of us yearn to love, be loved and known. Once we fully grasp the love of God for us, we become brave and confident to love others and impact our world our world for Christ.

Susan has been married to her dearest friend and longtime boyfriend, David for 41 years. He is a recently retired firefighter, and they are navigating this next new chapter of life with a lot of excitement and anticipation for what God has next for them. They have one adult daughter, Blythe, who is a special needs teacher for children ages three and four in Hoover.
