Life Forward Leadership Changes


After five years of service as Life Forward’s Executive Director, Jean Masthay will be moving on to serve as the Executive Director of Therapeutic Riding Institute in Springboro, Ohio.

During Jean’s tenure, Life Forward relocated our Clifton Center and Administrative Offices to a new building that provides additional space for expanded services and began plans to add a new location at The Healing Center. Under Jean’s leadership, Life Forward moved to a medical ministry model that includes the 3D/4D ultrasound program and Dr. Robert Arrom volunteering to serve our Medical Director. Life Forward has also been blessed by God’s faithful providence at critical moments of Jean’s time as Executive Director.

“I’m grateful for the spiritual and personal bonds we’ve shared as a staff team. They are passionate about Life Forward’s ministry to help women and their families make life affirming decisions through God’s love.”

We thank Jean for her leadership and ministry with Life Forward and pray for her as she moves on to new opportunities for service in our community.
