World Renewal announces
the addition of Frank Penna to its USA and international staff. "Frank has so
much to offer the local church, its worship leaders and musicians. I believe God
is going to bless Frank and those who invite him to their congregations,” says
World Renewal president, Gary Wright. Frank will lead short-term mission teams
to our various international fields to train and encourage local pastors and
their leaders. Gary points out, “We want to support the local church, many of
our smaller churches right here in our own country struggle and need some
training and encouragement when it comes to leading worship and the actual
singing and playing of instruments. I know Frank can assemble quality musicians
who can also go to other countries and our church plants.” There they can teach
faithful, but needy, leaders who in turn can teach others.
Frank and his wife Janet are both highly skilled
singers and musicians. They have served in both senior pastor and minister of
music positions. Frank is also available to serve in special events in the local
churches. Frank and Janet will continue to reside in Wichita, KS. You may
