"I’ve known Frank since we were kids in church. Frank has always had a heart for service. It was really no surprise to see him give his life to minister to others. On critical incidents I’ve seen Frank quietly tending to a victim and drawing alongside our first responders. He’s the boots on the ground calm in the storm and boy do we need that."

"I have been blessed to know Frank Mercer since he was a child and remember vividly when he walked forward in a church service to give his life to full-time Christian service. I have watched him follow up his decision years later by pursuing educational and theological degrees. I also watched him use these degrees in some very large and influential churches. One area that Frank has always had a heart for is that of working with emergency responders. Frank knows quite well the stressors and strains that come with those involved in making our communities a better place to live. Frank has honed his skill set as a Chaplain helping these public servants. If you or your organization can benefit from chaplaincy, I would highly recommend pursuing more information on the chaplaincy programs that Frank Mercer offers."

"Having Frank as our Chaplain has opened up a whole host of resources and opportunities for the members of the department. He is available during situations that you would normally think of during emergencies. However, having a Chaplain on staff allows men and women that would not normally access a faith-based system to have ready access. He is also a resource that supplements the existing EAP for the county. Personnel outside of the department have also recognized the value of the staff Chaplain and have called upon Frank to assist in a variety of other ways. The Chaplain (Frank) has been one of the greatest additions to the staff the department has made. I now can’t imagine not having this valuable resource."

"While working for the Fire Department that I recently retired from, I had the pleasure of meeting Frank Mercer. On the off chance he might accept, I asked him if he would be interested in being the Department Chaplain. I could tell he was moved by the offer and it was a great decision and opportunity for both the Department and Frank. He accepted and has done great things for the members of the Department. Frank is a motivator who is caring, honest, and always available. It has been my experience over the last 28 years that Chaplains either have a calling of the fire service brotherhood or they don't. It is clear to me that Frank has been called to serve the member of the fire service community. "
