A native of Indiana and child of the church, Frank grew up curious to navigate the ways that faith and life intersect. Following his undergraduate studies in editorial journalism and religion at Franklin College in Indiana, his years in divinity school at Wake Forest University were marked by a love of theological study, a strengthening of his faith, an exposure to various persons and places, and a strong embrace of the Reformed tradition.
Following seminary 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 learned the joys and laments of pastoral work in serving a congregation that offered him countless opportunities to lean into his gifts for ministry. Frank’s deep faith, his personal warmth, his ability to relate to people of all ages, his humility, his intelligence and articulate nature, his pastoring skills, and his grasp of what is needed to be a good pastor have served him well in his time at First Presbyterian. These qualities make Frank well qualified to serve as our Associate Pastor for Congregational Life and Stewardship. Frank joined the BMPC pastoral staff in June 2017.
Frank met his wife, Abby, while they attended Franklin College. They have been blessed with one child, Charlie, now two years old.
