Janie Franck is our Pastor’s Wife.
She spent most of her childhood being raised on a farm in Junction City , KS. She has enjoyed well over two decades in full time ministry with her husband. This ministerial path was set into motion with a Bible College BA in Missions, a 30 hour hospital Chaplain certification and a Masters in Biblical Counseling.

She treasures spending her free time with her husband and youngest son. Their oldest son has graduated from Palm Beach Atlantic University, and is pursuing a career in IT.
Janie is a “rule player” but her life motto is:
“I may grow old but I refuse to grow up.”
With this mind set she relates well to the teens she mentors.
Janie loves God & His Word, has been a prayer warrior, is organized, diligent hard worker, is known to have great common sense, is a loving Bible-based counselor, loves teen ministry & ladies ministry, loves missionary families and short term mission trips, and is financially frugal.
