Meet Our Staff

Michael Brown

Senior Pastor


Mike grew up in the Central Ohio area (Grove City) and became a Christian while in high school. He felt God directing him into pastoral ministry at the age of 17. He met his wife, Chris, while attending college in Indiana. They were married and accepted their first church assignment in Monroe, Indiana – where their daughter Stephanie was born. In 1989 the family moved to New Albany and Mike became senior pastor of Franklin Church.


It is his desire that the church impact the community for Christ by becoming a loving – caring church with a passion for leading and discipling families for Christ so that they may experience a living relationship with Him. Mike’s favorite scripture is Matthew 6:33.
