Before launching Forward, Clint served as Associate Pastor of Impact of Huntsville and a School of Ministry Instructor at Impact International School of Ministry founded by Dr. Jim Richards.
“Clint Byars served on staff at Impact for 6 years. No matter the situation, Clint showed the compassion and kindness toward people which opened the door for him to effectively minister the Gospel to them. As far as I’m concerned Clint Byars has a better grasp on the New Convent and the eternal realities of God than most ministers I know. Plus, in life he is the real deal! You will benefit greatly from anything he writes or preaches!”
