Praise Team Director: Jason Forrest
Jason got his start as many musicians do; in the church. He sang his first A Capella solo (Once in Royal Davids City) when he was six years old. He was born in Ocala and his family moved to St. Augustine in 1989. He married local girl Beth Norman (Beth Forrest) and they have two children. He began pursuing a career in music during college and played his way through. Since then he owned Barefoot Recording Studios until 2013 where he recorded and engineered albums for many different artists with varying musical styles and genres. His roots are in acoustic Christian music where he has an affinity for the obscure. Some of his favorite Christian Artists are Shane Barnard, Ed Cash, Justin McRoberts, Matt Redman, Chris Tomlin, and the gentleman of Dog Named David. Beyond being an accomplished musician Jason owns a local Construction Company: Forrest Inc, a Real Estate Company: Forrest Realty Group, and an Interior Consulting and Furniture Firm: The Modern Appointment. He is currently leading our Praise Team at our 9:15am worship Service on Sundays.
