Welcoming Frank Lanier to our NCD Team!

We are overjoyed to welcome Frank Lanier as our new NCD Director of Leadership Development. He has a deep love for Christ, genuine humility, proven pastoral skill, and a heart for service.

Frank and his wife Dottie are members of First Free Maplewood (where he served as an associate pastor prior to joining our team). He has been a member of our district board of directors since 2021.

His new role on our district staff will focus on these things:

– Shepherding the pastors and church leaders of our district (together with our team)
– Overseeing district events
– Leading our pastoral search ministry
– Spearheading our efforts to find, recruit, and support potential pastors and church leaders
– Increasing our ability to connect with churches, building healthy relationships with church leaders, and developing trust with congregations
– Helping district congregations in any way he can
– Regular preaching and teaching in NCD congregations (please reach out to Frank to invite him to share God’s word with your church)

We can’t wait to see what God does through Frank’s ministry, both in our congregations and on our district team.
