THE CHURCH PASTORATE
PASTOR FRANK (FRANCIS) EZEANIEKWE
Pastor Francis is an Associate Pastor of the Bride Assembly Church.
He was born on 7th September, 1961 in Ichida Anaocha Local Government Area of Anambra State, Nigeria.
He had his Primary School Education at Okotu and Azudo Primary Schools both in Ichida; and obtained his FSL Certificate in 1976.
Pastor Frank had a Roman catholic background as both parents were catholics. So, young Frank took interest in the priesthood and consequently enrolled for priestly training at St. Paul's Seminary Umunuko-Ukpor in Nnewi South Local Government Area, Anambra State. He later proceeded to All Hallow's Seminary, Onitsha; where he obtained his School Certificate with a Distinction in 1981.
Having come of age, Pastor Frank realized that the Roman catholic doctrine of celibacy for the priests was unscriptural, so he willingly opted out of priesthood training and later took to teaching profession. He was a secondary school tutor at Community Secondary School, Ichida where he took the senior classes in English Language, History and Literature in English; junior classes in Commerce and English Language till 1984 when he chose to go into private business. He ran a joint distributorship with his business associates at Benue Cement Company Plc., till June 1986 when he had problems with his partners.
Issues arising from that incident made young Frank "breakdown" in soberness because he realized he treated his partners unfairly. The Holy Ghost dealt with him so hard that it eventually led to his conversion (born again) precisely on June 11th, 1986.
He remained in the Roman catholic fold for sometime, but soon realized that greater percentage of catholic dogmas contravened bible doctrines. Consequently, he pitched tent with the pentecostals and became a full member of Deeper Life Bible Church in 1987, and was a House Fellowship Leader up to mid 1988 when he received the message of Malachi 4:5-6(b) in Lagos. He went on to fellowship with Grace and Truth Tabernacle Ifako, Bariga, Lagos under one of the foremost end-time message pioneer pastors in Nigeria, the late Pastor John Ogu.
