Dana and the Rev. Henry Frasier Jr.
Not only is Henry Frasier Jr. named after his father, the young pastor also followed in his parent’s footsteps when he entered the ministry.
Frasier, who is the founder and pastor of New Dimensions Christian Fellowship in Allenhurst, is the son of Elder Henry Frasier Sr. The church was established 15 months ago, however, Frasier has been in ministry for 15 years and has served as a pastor for 14 of them.
“My vision is to enhance the mindset of people so they can see there is more to God than what we have already seen and experienced,” Frasier said. “We must get to the place where we are not afraid to reach out for more. I love to encourage people and let them know God loves them.
“We currently have outreach, counseling, couples and praise team ministries. We have a fully licensed professional counseling ministry that is state certified and provides both natural and spiritual counseling. It is under the leadership of my wife, Dana Frasier,” the pastor said
Frasier said his driving force for 2010 is to let people know this is a year of restoration and recovery. “God is positioning us to be restored and recovered. Just like he restored Job after he prayed for his friends, I believe God is going to restore this year. The year 2010 will not be like 2009. God is ready to move on our behalf,” he said. “This whole month, we are reaching out and inviting other churches to fellowship with us. We are also evangelizing by word of mouth,” he said.
Frasier’s advice to pastors is to love the people and feed the sheep. “Christ loves us, so we must love the people,” he said.
He credits his wife, his father and Pastor Charles Roberson of Kingdom Life Christian Fellowship for inspiring him in his ministry. “From the very fact of being an encouragement and model of ministry, my father is my basic foundation of ministry. Pastor Roberson is my encourager and helper; and my darling wife has stood by my side for almost 20 years,” Frasier said.
The pastor comes from a musically inclined family and he loves to sing. He belongs to a gospel group called the Cousinnaires. “We were at the nursing home in Ludowici for their annual MLK program,” he said.
The Frasiers lives in Hinesville and have four children and four grandchildren. In his spare time, Frasier is learning to play golf.
