FORGE is led by Pete Alwinson.

Pete has been involved in developing men for over 30 years, helping guys come to understand who they are and how the Father is willing to invest Himself in developing them every day of their lives so that they can become the men He always intended them to be.  His passion is to leave no man left behind on the battlefield of life but to encourage all men to grow in Christ and in turn, reach other men.   Pete teaches how men grow by God’s grace into godly men.

A Californian, Pete founded a PCA church in Orlando, Florida, where he served for 26 years as Senior Pastor.  He has served churches in California, Illinois, Connecticut and Florida.  He is a graduate of Biola College in Communications, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (M.Div) and Reformed Theological Seminary (D. Min) in Oviedo, Florida.  Pete was one of the first speakers on the Man in the Mirror faculty and now is Pastor Emeritus, Executive Director, FORGE, City Wide Ministry to Men

with Man in the Mirror.  Pete has taught Communications and Theology of Ministry at Reformed Theological Seminary in Oviedo, Florida and now is on the Board of Directors of Knox Seminary in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.  He is on the Board of Key Life Network, the Bible Teaching ministry of Dr. Steve Brown, and can be heard weekly on the Questions and Answer segment with Steve each Friday.  His first book is, Like Father, Like Son, How Knowing God As Father Changes Men, published by New Growth Press.

Family is Pete’s claim to fame.  Married to Caron for 36 years, they have three children, Joel {and beloved daughter in law Aly}, granddaughters Maggie and Molly and Wyatt, Jon {and beloved daughter in law Sandra} and Jessie.  He knows he “married up” and loves to speak to men about his successes as well as his failures as a husband and dad.  Pete’s style combines openness, humor, great stories and strong Bible teaching as he easily connects with men.

Pete’s hobbies are working out, hiking 14er’s in Colorado, duck and gator hunting, scalloping and fishing with family.
