Fran hails from nearby High Point, NC. After studying Social Work and Spanish during her undergrad at Eastern University, she found herself called into full time ministry serving people struggling with homelessness and poverty in southeastern ohio. In this ministry setting she met her husband Andrew. Though Appalachia holds a special place in their hearts, Fran and Andrew have been blessed by their move to Winston-Salem during the summer of 2021 and the subsequent birth of their first son, Elias. Fran is grateful to be a part of a community that cherishes children and supports families in their discipleship.
