Frank Nichols

Lead Pastor

Frank was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but calls Cooper, Texas home as he spent most of his life growing up there. He has a BS in Biblical Studies with an emphasis in Youth and Family from Dallas Christian College and a MAR with Emphasis in Discipleship Ministries from Liberty University. Frank has been in ministry since 2001 and served in Texas and Oklahoma doing a variety of different things but focused primarily on families. Frank very much believes in a relational style of ministry. He believes in both empowering and challenging people to change their world and because of this he has seen God do "big things" at every stop in his journey.

Frank is a gifted communicator, a visionary leader, and practical theologian who would describe himself as, "A forgiven Christ follower, husband, dad, and pastor, who loves hoops, Texas Tech, and comic books and is simply trying to change the world with the love of Christ one person at a time."

He has been married to his wife Kara since 2002 and they have one son, Isaiah, who is 3. In addition to his son, Frank has also been the father figure to his fourteen younger siblings.
