Frank Venable



I served on staff with Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship, and later graduated from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary with a Masters of Divinity.  More recently I have enjoyed the process of coming into the Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC.)  My wife, Leslie, and I planted Christ the King Church in 1989, which has been an ongoing joyful privilege and a wonderful nurturing experience for our family.  Our two daughters grew up in this church family and now serve the Lord as adult believers.  In my free time, I enjoy playing the guitar, disc golf, cycling, taking our dog "Zoey" for walks, and going out on dates with my amazing wife, Leslie.  We have two grown daughters, Megan and Catie.

I have a heart for children, a passion for teaching and a deep desire to follow where God is leading me next!

My husband Alan and I have three children, Cammie, Emily, and Matthew.
