    Mark and Andrea met in Bardstown, KY in Andrea's home church. Mark was there to do a solo concert. Ten months later, Mark returned for another concert and a relationship was quickly started. After ten months of dating, Mark and Andrea were married in June of 2000. They started traveling and singing the very next week. 

    This marriage was the combining of two music ministries into one. Mark had been traveling solo for almost seven years. He had appeared on television and radio programs many times and had released 4 recordings. Andrea had been traveling in her father's evangelistic ministry since the age of 2. She had also released a recording and had appeared on television and radio many times. 

   Now together, The Foresters have released 31 recordings in 16 years. The newest is a project called "Living Proof."    It has a great mixture of old and new songs. 
    The Foresters have shared the stage with some of the biggest names in Gospel Music such as: The Booth Brothers, Greater Vision, Legacy Five, The Greenes, Kirk Talley, The McKameys, The Talleys, and many more. 

     Both Mark and Andrea have attended Bible College to further their musical and Biblical studies. Mark is a graduate of Midwestern Baptist College in Pontiac, MI. Andrea attended Shawnee Baptist College in Louisville,KY. Mark has also been an instructor at Midwestern Baptist College. 

    The goal of this ministry: 1. To see souls come to know Jesus Christ as their personal savior. 2. To encourage the body of Christ. 3. To be a help to the local church.  We want to be a help to the local church.

    Mark and Andrea are members of the Dixie Baptist Church in Clarkston,MI. Dr. Todd Vanaman is their Pastor.The Foresters are available for Church services, Revivals, Concerts, Banquets, or any other special event. They would love to bring their ministry to you!
