Frank Heberlig provides beautiful organ and keyboard music during the early worship service at First Church, and accompanies the Sanctuary Choir and guest soloists at both services.
Frank first felt the call to serve Christ at the age of 14, while attending Camp Joy El in Greencastle. “I felt the Lord come down upon me, and call me to serve Him and others,” he said. “That calling then translated into my music. I began playing for my home church and people would tell me that the Lord was working through me.” Frank continued to worship and serve, both at church and as a staff member at church camp.
Frank joined the staff of First Church in 2018.
