GAINESVILLE, Ga. — Jentezen Franklin, senior pastor of Free Chapel, releases the following statement in celebration of Father’s Day:
“Rise up men — your wives, your children, your neighbors need you. They need you to be fearless and courageous, never backing down from the noble calling of fatherhood. They need you to live lives of integrity and discipline. I am absolutely convinced that much of what ails this broken world could be mended if fathers would take their role seriously and lead and love in the fiercest way possible.
“I love being a dad. It’s more important than any job, any title, any accolade I’ve ever been given. My kids are a blessing from my Heavenly Father, and I commit to doing my own part to be a better father each and every day.”
