Frank loves Jesus, with his heart, soul and mind
His wife and children are the apple of his eye, a blessed gift of God

He seeks to share the Gospel with everyone he meets

Frank loves people, loves to help people, loves to listen to people

Frank’s heart is consistently focused on the needs of the people he meets
His concern for their lostness leads him to care for them as a shepherd
He also cares for their pain, their economic situation, and how he can help them
He never misses an opportunity to reach out and help, to care, to comfort

His whole life is an open book, he is a friend, he has friends
His word is his bond, his heart is passionate for the cause of Christ, and for hurting people
He leads as Jesus leads him, he is surrendered to the guidance of the Lord
Frank is winsome and people want to be with him, he cares

Dependability has been a lifelong trait
Frank is there, he is in the traces
Determined, diligent, bold and enthusiastic
He loves Jesus, and he ministers to his flock
Gently, generously, gratefully and with humility

Frank never runs over others, he truly works with people to help them
He has a unique ability to use words and actions that communicate his concern
He exhibits strength that is an uplifting strength, encouraging and positive
He has an ability to forgive and forget that enhances his ministry opportunities

Frank leads God’s church, and God’s people as God’s man
His life exemplifies his willingness to submit to Jesus and do what Christ calls him to do

His faith is platformed with joy and peace-Jesus is in control
Frank is patient, persuasive, resourceful and reverent to the Lord
An obedient servant who exercises self-control and wisdom for the Lord
Every day, he is in service to Jesus
