Who is Peter Frank?
Peter is a Baptist camp director’s son who went to a Lutheran college and then became an Anglican priest. Before taking on his current calling as the rector of Church of the Epiphany in Chantilly, Peter served the director of communications for Anglican Church of North America and for the Diocese of Pittsburgh. Peter attended Trinity Seminary in Ambridge, PA, where he earned an M.Div. Before preparing for ordained ministry, he worked as a small-town newspaper editor in northern Minnesota. Peter loves telling the story of God’s grace in Jesus Christ. He also enjoys using his undergraduate degree in Roman and Greek history and language to better understand the world of the New Testament and the lives of early Christians. Peter has been married to Andrea for 15 years and has two wonderful daughters; Cecilia, who is seven, and Clare, who is four. Because Cecilia’s father enjoys Latin, she will happily tell anyone who is interested that her name means “blind."
