Fannie M. Franklin is a licensed ordained minister, a Certified Pastoral Counselor and holds a BA in Church Ministry.  She is currently pursuing higher education in Theology.  She is the third generation of ministers on
both maternal and paternal sides of her family. 

God has placed a gift inside that often baffled even her at an early age.  A gift of discernment, listening with a spiritual ear coupled with wisdom that only comes from above.  This was only the beginning; on August 6, 1989, God filled her with the precious gift of the Holy Ghost.  Under the direction of the Holy Ghost and the guidance of her father, Bishop Joe T. Gray Sr., she began to learn the ways of the Lord, in addition to exceptional teachers around her; the foundation was laid. Her father and mother continuously taught the word of God, as well as leading by example. Her mother, a great woman of God taught her how to conduct herself as a woman in the ministry. 

Pastor Franklin’s first work in the church began as a member of the Nurse’s Board.  God blessed her in this ministry and anointed her to serve in this capacity and soon became president of the Board.  This is a love that will never die; always willing to serve the men and women of God. Pastor Franklin has labored in various capacities of ministry such as Pastor’s Aide; Sunday school teacher; Chairperson of Anniversary Committee’s; Administrative duties; Director of Ministerial Alliance and whatever she found and still finds her hands to do.

She is a Spirit Filled, Spirit lead Woman of God.  The anointing of God is upon her and has caused many to be delivered and set free.  She is a Prayer Worrier indeed, often fasting, praying and interceding for others. She operates and obeys God under the prophetic anointing.

A mandate has been placed upon Fannie M. Franklin to continue the work of the Lord through the birth of True Deliverance Apostolic Ministries where she is passionately leading men, women and children through an in-depth study of the Word of God. Lives are being transformed, renewed, restored and deliverance is taking place.

Pastor Franklin is a devoted family woman; she believes in a support system. She has gained the respect of her family by her direct and truthful approach and by living a clean life in which she also preaches. Pastor Franklin is a pillar to her siblings; a loving wife to Minister Larry D. Franklin and a strong mother of two great sons, whom she is training up in the word of God.  Through many trials and tribulations she has stood the test knowing that she “can depend on God” and that “the joy of the Lord is her strength”. Pastor Franklin is continuously running for God and she is not tired yet; Daily working on a closer walk with God until that day when he will say, “well done thou good and faithful servant”!
