Foursquare ForeRunners

ForeRunners are credentialed ministers in good standing who have retirement status. These honored individuals and their spouses have unique life experiences and strengths that enable them to continue to contribute to the kingdom. Though some of our ForeRunners are no longer engaged in formal ministry, they still are actively influencing the lives of others.

We are grateful for the legacy of the mothers and fathers of our Foursquare family who paved the way for many of the communities and countries where Foursquare still exists today. In fact, many of our ForeRunners continue serving their local Foursquare churches in various capacities-as assisting ministers, counselors, chaplains, mentors or coaches, international missionary supporters, and in various other positions. These key influencers provide a resource community that assists our district supervisors and local churches in passing the baton of ministry and leadership to a new generation.

"The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bear fruit in old age; They shall be fresh and flourishing"

Ps. 92:12-14 NKJV
