Pastor Ray Franklin became the Minister at Mt. Zion in April 2012. He had served as our interim pastor for several months before being called to be our full time Pastor.
Pastor Ray also leads a nursing home ministry early Sunday mornings before leading the services at Mt. Zion.
He and his wife Ardith served as missionaries in Japan for several years before settling in Arkadelphia. He now serves as an Associate Professor of Missions at Ouachita Baptist University.
Mt. Zion is blessed to have Pastor Ray serving with us.
