Daniel P. Franklin

Daniel P. Franklin was saved as a young boy during the Protestant revivals of the 1950s. He was called to ministry in 1973 balancing both work as a business executive and serving as an assistant pastor at Grace Bible Church. However, provoked by the evolution of the mainstream Christian church from a Christ-centered witness into a man-centered organization promoting the false gospel of self-esteem, he resigned his secular duties in the year 2000 to devote himself to ministry. He now faithfully serves as our pastor preaching Sunday and Wednesday sermons along with writing a timely devotional: Shepherd’s Heart.

He also serves in our music ministry as our choir director and main congregational hymn leader.
