National Ministries Conference
2017 Conference Speaker
Join with us as we welcome our National Ministries Conference speaker for 2017, Briarwood’s new National Missions Pastor Joseph Franks.
As the leader of Briarwood’s church revitalization ministry, Embers to a Flame, Joseph also leads the charge regarding church planting, church partnerships, and urban ministry. Married for twenty-six years to his wife Laura, they have three children – two who attend Covenant College and one who is a sophomore at Briarwood Christian School. Joseph holds a Master of Divinity degree from Knox Theological Seminary, and a Masters of Theology in Church History from Westminster Theological Seminary.
His favorite quote is from the English Puritan, John Preston, “Spend your fat and sweetness for God and man; wear out, not rust out; flame out, not smoke out; burn out, be not blown out.”
