Faron W. Franklin, Evangelist


Faron Franklin preached his first sermon when he was nine years old at a youth night at his home congregation in Shelbyville, Kentucky.   

Since his first sermon, Faron has felt God's call on his life to go preach the Good News.  Over the years, he also has mentored other young men to proclaim the greatest message in the world---Jesus!

Faron has preached in close to 20 states across the country, some provinces in Canada, and performed mission work in Mexico.
He began ministry as a traveling evangelist holding revivals and crusades and has held located ministries in Kentucky, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. 

He has three loves in life:  Preaching the Good News, the Lord's church and his four sons.


We are so happy to introduce you to our Restoration church family, and are eager to familiarize you with the church and its congregation and ministries. All are all designed to glorify God and meet your daily needs. You are personally invited to attend any of our worship services, Bible studies or church activities.

Our hope is that you will find restoration through Jesus Christ.  

I, personally, know that the world can throw curves that knocks you off of your feet. We have all struggled - made bad decisions and misstepped from a righteous path. If you want an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ, we want to lead you each step of the way.

We are blessed with a congregation of warm, giving people who love the Lord and love others. If you are looking for a church home, we hope you will join us. There are no frills and no fronts. We are a friendly group of believers who laugh together, cry together, serve together and find joy in the Lord together. 

There is a place for you to grow in this special family. 

If you have any questions, I am happy to talk with you and hope to see you this Sunday. May God's riches and blessings be yours as you live out your journey and serve Him.
