Forthright Ministries was created by Doug Shaw int the mid 2,000s to help ministries succeed with marketing and leadership training. 

Over the years, we have worked with ministries throughout the United States, Costa Rica, India, and South Africa. Our work has included everything from photography, graphic design projects and campaigns, designed church signs, and even done promotional videos for churches and fundraisers. 

In 2017, we raised over $16,000 for other ministries and in 2018 we were over $10,000 to other ministries. 

All of our work is done at no cost to the ministries that we work with. This means that we have to come up with other ways to cover our costs which is where our Colorado Peach Sale and Mission Candles sale comes in to play. 

Doug has over 15 years of experience in the fields of marketing and ministry. He has served as a missionary, pastor, youth pastor, church planter, and much more. His understanding of marketing brings a modern business touch to ministry that stays true to Christ's call to go to the nations. He has preached at churches all over the world and loves to help leadership teams become stronger so that your ministry can reach it's full potential. 

Doug and his wife, Kiriat, serve as leaders (associate pastors) for La Hermosa church in Delevan, Wisconsin (USA) and as youth leaders at La Hermosa's main church in South Beloit, Illinois.  They have 2 daughters and live in South Beloit, IL.
