Undergrad (Wesley Forte) grew up in rural Kansas City, Missouri as a member of St. James, United Methodist Church, Pastor Emanuel Cleaver, II and currently serves in the youth ministry at Sheffield Family Life Center. Growing up in the church with a God fearing mother and many others by his side, guided him in the right direction.
His love for music began as a child. He participated in the church choir and performed with the group “Too Young to be True” before many audiences from the age of 9 to the age of 13. Undergrad graduated from Hogan High School with academic and athletic honors and attended college at the University of Central Missouri. He currently works with the Kansas City, Missouri School District and Freedom School.
In May 2006, Undergrad rededicated his life to the Lord Jesus and began to build his relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. By 2007, he made up his mind to truly turn his life around and live “all out” for the Lord. He adopted the name “Undergrad” because as he states, “I am a full time student of the Lord and Heaven is my graduation”. Undergrad is now a true man of God, who not only speaks the word of the Lord, but also walks it. He has a heart for the lost; witnessing to each unsaved soul he can, including students in his classroom.
As Undergrad so often will say, “If you don’t have God, please put Him in your life. To have a peace of mind, is to have a peace with God”. Anyone who knows Wesley A. Forte, AKA the Undergrad, will say that he is a man who is SOLD OUT FOR GOD. The Lord has brought him through the fire and through the storm and now he can say I’m “Free”.
