BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Hello! My name is Brian Franklin and I’ve been married to Barkley Franklin since 2004. We have been blessed with 3 children, Caroline, Aubrey, and Andrew. I grew up in Georgia playing soccer most of my life. I started working at Chick-fil-A since I was 15 years old, and I still work for Chick-fil-A today, having been at the home office since 2001.
I really enjoy spending time with the kids at all their activities, including coaching baseball. I also like working out, bird hunting, smoking meats, and visiting MLB stadiums with Barkley. I accepted Christ at a young age and have been trying to grow and help out wherever is needed since. We are very excited to be a part of the Gathering family and loving the community around us.
Rick and Beth Harper started Georgia Tech Christian Campus Fellowship in May 1987. Rick received a degree in Business from the University of Georgia in 1983 and was also involved at the Christian Campus Fellowship at UGA. After graduating, Rick spent a year as an intern at CCF at Florida State. There he met Beth, who holds a degree in Nursing from FSU.
Rick completed his Master’s degree at Emmanuel School of Religion in 1987 and they moved to Atlanta to begin CCF as well as their family. Rick has three sons, Garrett, Donovan, and Grayson, and three daughters-in-law, Schyler, Erin, and Casey. Rick’s job as Campus Minister includes teaching at Bible Study on Thursday nights, leading the Big Sap Leadership group, and meeting with and counseling students.
My name is Kyndra McIntosh. I am a project manager in LaGrange, Georgia. It has taken me 15+ years of being a Christian to learn to hold the tension of being broken over the darkness in the world while experiencing all of the wonderful benefits I have access to in Christ. Some of my passions are student discipleship, cross-cultural ministry and I will always have a special place in my heart for corporate worship in all its forms!
My name is William Moore, but most people call me Billy. I married my best friend, Maria Moore in 2007. We have two beautiful children, Brandon (2011) and Rebecca (2014). I am a lieutenant for the Fayette County Fire Department. I am also a coach for Brandon's baseball team, so between work schedules, baseball schedules, and school schedules, we stay busy. We have been part of The Gathering People since the beginning. Our family has grown up in the church and we absolutely love showing people Jesus' love anyway we can.
I'm Kami, and I love being part of the Gathering People! I'm a Georgia (Tech) girl, and my family and I moved to Senoia in 2019 after a short stint in Maryland and a long stint working as campus ministers to university students in Puebla, Mexico. I'm married to Jordan and we have two great kids named Amos and Quinn. I work for an organization called Globalscope, where I get to encourage and support people living all around the world as they share Jesus' love with university students! I'm hopeful that my time in ministry and the non-profit world can be helpful to our community.
Ralph retired in September 2019 from his job as Region VP of Finance for US Foods, Inc. He is a CPA-retired. With three grandkids formerly in Budapest, now living in Fayetteville, four more in Perry, and a wife as full of energy as Lacene, you can imagine retirement has been as busy as his work career. He is excited about the Vision for the Gathering and sees this as a potential opportunity to use his business background to help give guidance to the Gathering team.
