Curriculum Vitae

Frank has been serving Moravian Theological Seminary as Vice-President and Dean since 2001, following five years as a full time faculty member teaching New Testament. Frank approaches theological education with a series of questions in mind: How might we tap into the more revolutionary elements of a Moravian tradition distinctively marked by martyrdom, exile, mission, and innovation? How do we create a diverse community where all are welcome, all are challenged, and all are both teaching and learning? How do we help individuals and communities face a changing, unpredictable, frequently unjust, and often violent world with faith, love, and hope—and courage?

Outside of his work at the Seminary and with the Moravian Church, Frank spends his time with movies, books, music (listening, not playing), writing, exercising in the campus Fitness Center, walking a four mile loop along the Lehigh River and through the middle of town, taking weekend naps, enjoying time with Audrey West (his wife)—at home, in town, and/or on the road, and remembering that the Greek word for “disciple” means “learner” and that the Beatles did not originate the idea that all you need is love.
