As founder of Franck Insights, Dennis brings over three decades of experience with young adults, single adults, single - parent families and ministry/leadership development. He served 21 years as a single’s pastor, and 14 years as director of Single Adult Ministries for the Assemblies of God National Leadership and Resource Center in Springfield, MO. Dennis’s work included the development of Young Adult, Single Adult, and Single - Parent - Family Ministries on the district, regional, and national level. His passion for equipping leaders for these ministries quickly became evident, as leaders from many church backgrounds consulted him on leadership and ministry issues.
His book, Reaching Single Adults – An Essential Guide for Ministry (Baker Publishing), has been used by churches and leaders of many faith backgrounds. He also has two chapters in Baker Single Adult Ministry Handbook, Single to Single, and Counseling Single Adults. Global University published his course, Introduction to Single Adult Ministry, in 2012.
As a consultant/coach to denominations, leaders, ministries and churches, Dennis speaks for conferences, retreats and ministry - training events of various backgrounds nationally and internationally, and writes articles on single adult and leadership issues for publications and websites.
He and his wife, Jill, live in Springfield, MO and have two grown children, Tim and Jessica, and four grandchildren.
The purpose of Assemblies of God Single Adult Ministries is to help districts, churches, pastors and leaders build spiritually-strong single and single-again adults of all ages.
