Bro. Forrest was licensed to the Gospel ministry in September
1946 and ordained in December 1947 by the Camp
Creek Baptist Church. He was a 1969 graduate of Louisiana
Tech University. Bro. Post was the true picture of a

Baptist Church, of Pollock, Corinth Baptist Church of
Dubach, Mt. Patrick Baptist Church of, Bernice, Mt. Union
Baptist Church of Spearsville, and Camp Creek Baptist

His ministry and desire to share the Gospel allowed him
to preach many revivals over the years. He served in every
capacity available in the Concord/Union Association and
was instrumental in obtaining and serving on the board
of directors of Harris Baptist Encampment in Homer. He
also served on numerous committees of the Louisiana
Baptist Convention and its Executive Board. He was also

Bro. Forrest was the epitome of a servant of God. He
leaves a legacy of devotion and love for the Lord to, not
only his family, but to all those who knew and loved him.
The family owes a great debt of gratitude to Marc Post,
who was more than a son to his father. He was his constant
companion and caregiver to the very end. The family also
offers its heartfelt appreciation to Jennifer Brown, who
