Our Partners

Here at Forward City, we use the term partners instead of members. In traditional settings, the word member sometimes has passive characteristics. We want each person to know that when you make the decision to come alongside us, you are partnering together to bring the vision of the house alive! This is not a space where only a chosen few a tasked with running with the vision but we all have a specific part to play! 


Welcome H.O.M.E.

Our core values are who we are. They are not just what we do—they are part of our DNA. These values are non-negotiable for us.

Honor God and Each Other

This is what it means to be a member of the body of Christ. 

One Family

This is where you find direction for your purpose and your place within the larger family of believers. 

Make Disciples

This is where you develop skills to be an effective witness.

Embrace Grace and Express Love

This is how we support others on the journey with a heart to serve.

Our Pastors

Our lead pastors, Travis and Dr. Jackie Greene heard a call from God in 2013 to build up a church in Columbia, SC that would challenge racism and religion. They are on a mission together to engage and redefine culture for God. They moved to Columbia in 2015 and started Forward City Church to fulfill what God had laid before them.

In addition to pastoring, Travis has traveled across the world as a gospel recording artist and speaker. Dr. Jackie leads women into finding their true identity through her ministry, Dr. JG. They both enjoy laughing, late night talks, and the LA Lakers. Together they have three sons, David Jace, Travis Joshua, and Jonathan Judah Willie.
