Jo Forrest Dr. Jo Forrest
Senior Pastor, Head of Staff

Jo Forrest began serving Westminster Presbyterian Church in 2021. Prior to accepting God’s call to ministry, she worked for several decades in corporate consulting in the financial services industry helping clients either find stability following market tumult or operational crises or invigorate their businesses that had grown complacent.

Fourth Presbyterian in Chicago nurtured her call to ministry where she returned for her first call to interim ministry. She later served Kenilworth Union Church in the northern suburbs of Chicago.

Jo earned a Master of Liberal Arts and Master of Divinity at the University of Chicago and a Doctorate in Ministry from The Candler School of Theology of Emory University.

Jo and her husband, Hamish, have led pilgrimages in Canada, Israel, Scotland, and Spain and look forward to the freedom to safely travel again, hiking through mud, praying in the fields, and serving in mission.

Ann Morris Rev. Ann Morris
Parish Associate

Ann and Bob Morris joined Westminster in 1984 and made life-long friends there through the Genesis adult education class, social events, and worship. Because WPC’s Seminar program was taught by many staff from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, Ann felt lead to explore a call to ordained ministry.

Ordained in 2003, she served a small church in Pittsburgh presbytery and filled many vacant pulpits in Allegheny and Beaver counties and is active in International Association of Women Ministers.

Ann graduated from Grove City College and received a master's in business administration from the University of Pittsburgh. Before entering the ministry, Ann worked in the treasury departments of Joy Technologies and Westinghouse Electric.

Ann and Bob live in Mt. Lebanon and are voracious readers. Having recently become grandparents they enjoy traveling the PA turnpike to Philadelphia to visit their daughter Maureen and her family.
