The Vandalia Leader recognizes the “Person of the Week” that has been nominated by the readers. The criteria is someone that is giving back by being a productive and caring member of the community.
This week’s “Person of the Week” is Jaime Franke, Senior Minister of the First Christian Church.
Before coming to the First Christian Church, Minister Franke served as the Senior Minister in Clarence and Prairie Hill, Mo.
For the past two and a half years, Minister Franke has served both the church and community of Vandalia.
“I don’t know anyone who puts in more time to serve the local community and church family,” a reader said.
Minister Franke is married to Christy, and they have four children, Walker (14), Michaela (11), Jackson (9), and Kemper (7).
“I feel very privileged and honored to serve the Lord in this community. My family and I have always felt welcomed here and we appreciate that. I also want to thank those who nominated me for this award,” Minister Franke said.
