PastorFrankGriffithFrank Griffith

Frank has been the Pastor Teacher at Calvary since it was formed in December 1997. He has been married to Judy for over 45 years and they have three children and 12 grandchildren. Frank received his formal training at Talbot Theological Seminary, Golden Gate Theological Seminary, New College Berkeley and Westminster Theological Seminary. He holds a Masters Degree from Talbot in New Testament Exegesis. But his primary and most important training for ministry has come through life in the world and the local Church and his family where he has learned that "Christ is All." The most important courses of study have been the hard knocks of real life where the gospel has been tested and found to be true and powerful ("Cheer up, you're worse than you think and God's grace is far greater than you have ever imagined" Jack Miller). He has taught Theology, Bible Exposition, Biblical Languages and Christian Living at Grace School of Theology since 1975 and Theology Proper at The Cornerstone Seminary since 2004. Frank's passion is the preaching of the gospel of the glory of Christ.
