     Hi.  I'm Kelvin Franklin.  Evangelist Charlotte Franklin is my wife and we sponsor this site jointly.  We were both born in Calhoun County, Mississippi in 1962 and 1964.   I was baptized and became a member of Bridges Chapel Missionary Baptist Church, located in Pittsboro in 1972.  She was a member of Jackson Chapel Missionary Baptist Church in Bruce, Mississippi.  We have known each other since kindergarten and have been married for 32 wonderful years.

Ministry

     My parents  raised me in the church along with my two brothers.  Learning to read at an early age, my earliest memories are of reading the many versions of children's bibles available in our home.  Active in  the church throughout my life, I began assisting in teaching the youth Sunday school classes at church.  By the time of graduation from high school, I was serving as the church's Sunday School superintendent and alternate Adult Sunday School Teacher.   The Lord called me to the ministry in Madrid, Spain in early 80's.  I was licensed in the ministry in 1983 and ordained in 1988 by Bridges Chapel Missionary Baptist Church, National Baptist Convention USA. 

As a minister, I have served in the following capacities:
     Associate Minster, Torrejon Air Base (AB) Gospel Service 
     Associate Minister, Yokota AB Gospel Service 
     Pastor and Founder, Tinker Air Force Base (AFB) Gospel Service

  Music

     My Father was a high school band director, graduating from Mississippi Valley State University.  I began my study of music as a trumpet player from 6th and was rated first chair during my senior year at Bruce High School in Mississippi.

     I began teaching myself to play piano in the early 80's.  
I have served as:

     Musician, Tinker AB Gospel Choir;
     Pianist, Rhein-Main AB Gospel Choir and Praise and Worship Team;

     Charlotte has served along side me throughout this period as a Choir Director and Dynamic Vocalist.  Together, we conducted a series of Gospel Music Workshops in Mississippi and Oklahoma between 1989 - 1993.
