About Me:


OFFICIAL BIO: Kris Frank attended Franciscan University and graduated in 2008 with a degree in catechetics and theology with a youth ministry concentration. With over 10 years of parish youth ministry experience, Kris and his family now live as missionaries serving the poor and inner-city youth with Dirty Vagabond Ministries. Kris also has been privileged to travel around the country, sharing the Gospel with teens and young adults at various churches, camps, and conferences. Kris spends his free time with his beautiful wife, Grace, and their four children. He is grateful every day for the gift of God’s grace and the joy of serving the Church.

I’m a pretty normal guy. There isn’t too much really say, but since you’ve made it this far I guess I should give you something. I grew up in a nice, little town in Ohio. I had aspirations to be a doctor from a young age but God had different plans. While in high school, God captured my heart and set my life on a course that I couldn’t have dreamed up myself. I attended Franciscan University of Steubenville where I dropped the pre-med dreams to instead learn about and how to teach Godly things, (the fancy terms are Theology and Catechetics, respectively).

While in college I met Grace. She is my better half and the heartbeat of our family. After seven years of marriage, we have three amazing children and a fourth one who is ok – just kidding. My children, Magdalene, Eden, Caleb & Cana are all amazingly fun and incredibly unique.

When I’m not with my family you can usually find me working for Jesus in some way. I have been blessed to serve in various churches doing youth ministry over the years. Aside from working in parishes, I have had the opportunity to speak at conferences and churches, camps and campuses across the country sharing the Gospel message with both teens and adults alike. I don’t know what plans God has for me tomorrow but I’m excited to find out.

Bonus fact: I’m a bigger Cleveland Browns fan than you.
