A few notes about our Pastor:

Pastor Daniel Jepsen joined Franklin Community Church in 2001 as Associate Pastor.  He was asked to become Senior Pastor in 2005, in a move now widely regretted. 

Daniel received his master's degree from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois. He has been in the ministry for 20 years, and really should know what he's doing by now (but doesn't). 

Daniel is married to a beautiful woman named Amy, who views it as her chief duty to keep him sane and out of trouble. They have been blessed with three children: Rachel, Joseph, and Sarah. 

Daniel is also an adjunct professor in the areas of New Testament and Philosophy at Indiana Wesleyan University, another institution of apparently low  employment standards. 

Daniel's interests include reading (mainly history and the classics), hiking and whatever his kids are doing.
