Bruce Frank is the Lead Pastor of Biltmore Baptist Church, repeatedly named as one of the top 100 fastest growing and largest churches in America. He lives in Asheville, North Carolina, with his wife Lori. They have two sons: Tyler and Conner, and a beautiful daughter in law Carissa.
Bruce was born in Atlanta, Georgia, but grew up in Oklahoma and Texas. He became a follower of Christ at the age of 17 through the influence of his three brothers. He attended Texas Tech University (BBA ’86) and was discipled through Campus Crusade for Christ. He felt called to the ministry during that time and soon enrolled at Southwestern Seminary (MDIV. ’91) in Ft. Worth, Texas. There he began his first local church staff experience, and most importantly, met Lori Masters, whom he married in 1989. He continued his studies and received his D.Min. from Luther Rice Seminary in 2000. His hobbies include golf, running and reading. He loves dogs; cats…not so much.
Bruce served churches in Texas until his call to Biltmore in 2008. Biltmore averages over 7,400 worshippers during the weekend services at 5 campuses (Arden, Swannanoa, Franklin, Hendersonville, West Asheville). The Arden Campus is the “broadcast” campus.
