The Rev. Frank F. Wilson
A priest in the Episcopal Church since 1998, Fr. Frank is serving St. Timothy’s as Interim Priest-In-Charge until the parish completes its search for a new full-time rector to succeed the former rector and now retired priest, Fr. Louis Tonsmier. Fr. Frank has served as rector in three other parishes in the Diocese of Atlanta as well as a parish in the Diocese of Western North Carolina. He retired from full-time ministry in 2015 following his tenure as rector of St. Clare’s Episcopal Church in Blairsville. He still resides in Blairsville with his wife Suzanne.
Prior to his attending seminary and his ordination in the Episcopal Church, he served on the faculty of Kennesaw State University for over 19 years primarily in the capacity of Director of Student Activities, but also for a time as Acting Dean of Students.
In between his career in higher education and attending seminary, he served as the Director of The Extension — a non-profit, 501 c 3 homeless shelter and transitional housing program for men located in Marietta, and helped move that program into a non-profit drug and alcohol recovery program. In a volunteer capacity he has served on the Boards of Directors of Hope House in Union County, the Good Samaritan Health and Wellness Center in Pickens County, and the Pickens County Community Resource Association. He has also served as a member of the Georgia Mountain Hospice Advisory Committee, the Family Connections Task Force and the Cobb County United Way Advisory Council.
In addition to the Master of Divinity degree, Fr. Frank holds the Master’s in Education degree in counseling as well as the AB. degree in Psychology from West Georgia College.
