Franklin Heights Institute exists to help equip the church to think Biblically and be SENT to tell others about Jesus. The world needs to hear the truth of the Gospel, and we want to equip you to know how to tell it. The foundation of the Franklin Heights Institute is based on 1 Peter 3:15 which says, “but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,”. This is the goal for everyone who participates in the Institute; to know what you believe, why you believe it, and to tell it to others in truth and love.

Franklin Heights will feature several classes this summer for middle and high school students, and their parents and caretakers. All classes will be held at 11:00AM in the Student Center at the Rocky Mount Campus. Dates and a description of each class may be found below. Register here.
