2023 40 Under 40 Spotlight: Sara Forhetz, 2013

Posted online

Then: Reporter, KY3 Inc.
Now: Founder, Intentional Pursuit Ministries

After exiting broadcast journalism for nonprofit work in 2021, the professional focus for Sara Forhetz is now primarily aimed toward sharing her faith through speaking engagements.

Forhetz, 40, was a reporter at KY3 for 16 years before taking a part-time job as the lead reporter for international humanitarian relief nonprofit Convoy of Hope.

She left the organization six months ago to devote more time to public speaking about Christianity, a pursuit started seven years ago. She dubs her work as Intentional Pursuit Ministries, noting she recently spoke in Africa.

“It wasn’t until recently that I could actually do it more vocationally, where I’m busy enough that it feels like a full-time job,” she says, adding she will continue to help Convoy on a freelance basis.

What’s your best advice to young professionals?
Build relationships over product. Success flows out of relationships. Your boss matters and your co-workers matter. Build a relationship with them as people and, honestly, the rest will take care of itself.
