    Ministry with a mission

    Mar 29
    There is one item on Justin Forbes’ desk. One. It’s a laptop computer, a rather lonesome-looking tool parked on a wide swath of polished workspace. Bookshelves around the office of the Flagler College Youth Ministry Program are tidy, organized. In fact, the level of orderliness is startling, considering the incredible level of productivity emanating from this little command central on Valencia Street, where Forbes juggles the responsibilities of professor, spiritual mentor, consultant, husband, father, and most recently, director of the Youth Ministry Program.

    By Laura Smith, Photo By Paul Wingler Flagler alumni Diane Evia-Lanevi, ‘87, and Ingemar Lanevi, ‘86, have come a long way since the mid-80s, when both were undergraduates at Flagler College.

And they both benefited significantly from Flagler’s ability to offer them much-needed financial aid packages.
