Frank Becker’s Summer Speaking Schedule

Frank will be speaking the first two Sundays in June and all four Sundays in July at Faith Temple Baptist Church, in Spring, Texas, while Pastor Bill Bright takes a much deserved vacation.

Frank, and his wife Joy, have been residents of Spring for the past 20 years. Joy taught English at Klein ISD for fourteen years, and is now very active with Global Media Outreach, helping inquirers to find and follow Christ.

Frank founded and pastored churches and Christian schools in upstate New York, and spent a number of years co-hosting a daily Christian radio talk show in the state capital.

He founded Cross Trainers Ministries in 2005. Among that ministries achievements is the funding of orphanage in Hyderabad India.

Apart from his involvement with Cross Trainers, Frank founded Home Church ministries, and taught numerous Bible studies. He also publishes the work of many contemporary preachers at

And he has somehow found time to write and publish nine books.

Among these is “The Depression Proof Church: The Biblical Answer to the Church in Crisis,” which received an enthusiastic review from Paige Patterson, former head of the Southern Baptist Convention.

Frank’s most recent offering is a historical novel, “Saving Jesus: The Untold Story of the Wise Men.”

In spite of these accomplishments, Frank has been absent from the pulpit for several years, and is extremely conscious of his need for the anointing of the Holy Spirit in order to bless and encourage the congregation. He covets your prayers.

Frank is scheduled to preach at the 11 am services on June 6th and 13th, and every Sunday in July, at Faith Temple Baptist Church, 5318 Spring Stuebner, Spring, Texas.
