senior pastor frank seamans & wife, Libby

Serving as Senior Pastor at Freedom Fellowship is Frank Seamans. With 27 years in fulltime ministry, Pastor Frank is passionate about leading our fellowship of believers in the "abundant" Spirit-filled Christian experience Jesus spoke of in John 10:10. After spending more than five years traveling and singing tenor with the legendary Southern Gospel group Legacy Five, Frank came back to his hometown in 2011 to serve in the Associate Pastor role under his longtime friend and mentor, Pastor O. C. Bates. With Pastor Bates' retirement at the end of 2013, Frank was officially voted in as Pastor. With his background in music, Pastor Frank is also able to serve as our Worship Leader while we're engaged in a search for the right person to fill that role, which is a valuable asset to our church family. Frank and his wife, Libby, raised five sons who are all "grown and gone" now, allowing them the freedom to give all their time and efforts to serve Freedom Fellowship. Libby partners with Frank in directing the church's services and ministries.
