MEMORIAL RESOLUTION HONORING
Deacon Frank Leonard Lowe
Whereas, Deacon Frank Leonard Lowe was the longest serving chair of the Black Caucus since its inception for over 16 years, until 2020. During these years, he initiated many works.
Brother Frank contributed to the growth of the Evergreen Association by leading us on our first road trip to Spokane, Washington. He later mentored churches in California into membership, which led to the caucus now holding monthly meetings.
In response to a request from Yosh Nakagawa of the Asian Caucus, Brother Frank called us together in fellowship which became the Annual Evergreen Association Barbecue, sponsored by the Black Caucus. Every year, he baked at least 15 sour cream and cream cheese pound cakes, as well as being sure there was plenty of ice for all to enjoy. Through the years, he continued to extend the invitation to others to join the barbecue and the caucus to build up our fellowship.
Brother Frank was a visionary as he saw that annual meetings out of state gave us an opportunity to visit member churches. He enjoyed attending the ABCUSA Biennial Meeting since the gathering in Pasadena, California.
Brother Frank truly epitomized the term servant leader, “He sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, “Whoever wants to be first must be last of all and servant of all.” Mark 9:35 NRSV
Therefore, be it resolved this Ninth Day of October in the Year Two Thousand Twenty-One; we are grateful to God for having sent us Brother Deacon Frank Leonard Lowe. May he rest in peace.
The Black Caucus of Evergreen Association of American Baptist Churches - ABCUSA
