A native of the Midwest and child of the Church, Frank grew up curious to navigate the ways that faith and culture intersect. After matriculating at Franklin College in Indiana, where he studied editorial journalism and religion, he continued his education at the Divinity School of Wake Forest University. There, he cultivated his sense of call to ordained ministry and cemented his love for long conversations over good coffee about theology, history and politics, and the work and witness of the Reformed Tradition.
Following seminary and chaplaincy at a children’s hospital, Frank accepted a call to become the solo pastor of First Presbyterian Church in Mt. Sterling, Kentucky. Over the course of his five and a half years as pastor there, Frank leaned into his gifts to discover the joy of working to help God’s people discover the abundant life.
Frank’s engaging faith, his personal warmth, his ability to relate to people of all ages, his humility, his intelligent and articulate nature, and his grasp and understanding of congregational ministry continue to shape his call to serve the Church. He joined the BMPC staff as our Associate Pastor for Congregational Life and Stewardship in June 2017.
Frank is married to Abby, and their lives are enriched by their two small sons and their totally depraved Australian Shepherd.
