Ray Raines said he was excited about having Frank follow him as the Mission's leader: "I believe with all my heart that he is God's man for now and the future of the mission to serve the homeless and needy of East Central Indiana. He has a heart of compassion and a desire to serve the Lord in this home mission field."

Frank said he was looking forward to carrying on the quality of ministry the Muncie Mission provides.

I eagerly anticipate networking and establishing community relationships within the city of Muncie and working together with the great staff of the mission and the many community volunteers to improve the lives of our fellow citizens who have needs that can be met by the Mission."
