My name is Sean Forde, and I am honored to serve all people and their families at First Lutheran Church. It gives me great joy to help people grow in their faith and love towards God. I hope to lead through servant leadership, the examples of leadership that Jesus taught his disciples to follow.
My wife Susan and I have three children Aaron, Joshua, and Rebecca. Our family has lived the majority of time in Boca Raton, FL. I have served three congregations in Florida before serving in Albert Lea. I attended Luther Seminary in St. Paul, MN where I received my MDiv. and DMin. degrees.
My activities include serving in the community through various service organizations. I enjoy reading, both for educational purposes and for fun. I also enjoy sports through actively playing, attending games, or simply watching on TV.
One of my favorite passages is Revelation 7:17—‘For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’
