Rev. Wayne Frazier, Church Vitality Coordinator with Outreach North America
Wayne has served in the ARP Church for 42 years by planting two churches, one in the Kennedy Space Center area during the development of the Space Shuttle and one in Austell, GA on the west side of Atlanta. From 1991 until 2016 he served at Back Creek Presbyterian in Charlotte. In about 10 years that rural farming community transitioned to an urban community with two-thirds of the people being African-American and other ethnicities. By God’s grace Back Creek has begun to reflect this wonderful diversity in membership, worshippers, leaders, and staff. Wayne was the moderator of the ARP Bicentennial Synod in 2003. Now that he has retired he is serving half time as the “Church Vitality Coach” for Outreach North America. He encourages churches to be missionaries in our post-Christian culture by developing a biblical vision, mission and strategy to reach their neighbors with the unchanging gospel.
