Meet Our Ministry Team:
Pastor – Rev. Cliff Jenkins
Pastor Jenkins was born and raised in North Philadelphia but while growing up was also a big Pirates and Steelers fan. Cliff has lived in Pennsylvania all his life and his sports love for Pittsburgh eventually led him to college where he graduated from the University of Pittsburgh. He is also a graduate of Biblical Theological Seminary and has served the Lord as a Youth Pastor, church planter and Senior Pastor over the past twelve years. Cliff currently mentors several church planters and pastors throughout the state and across denominational lines. He has been married to his bride, Michelle, for twenty-five years and they have two children: Christopher and Stephanie. Cliff also has responsibility for overseeing Church Planting Assessments in the Pennsylvania/South Jersey territory.
Community Minister – Todd Lewis
Minister Todd was born in San Diego, CA where he grew up playing baseball, football and surfing. While he has lived in various parts of the country, the Lord called him to Pittsburgh in 2010 to begin planting churches which has started with the Forge. Todd’s role has been to lead the charge in connecting with West View and surrounding communities in an effort to reach people for Jesus. His heart for the city as well as his past street ministry experience has uniquely gifted him to serve the Lord in this capacity. Todd has been blessed with a wonderfully supportive family: his wife, Kathleen, and their three children, Ned, Nick, and Grace.
