|About Our Pastor
Note: On March 5, 2010, the Rev. Frank Logue announced he had accepted a call to become the Canon for Congregational Development for the Diocese of Georgia. Frank remains our pastor through June 13. King of Peace's Vestry (Church Board) is working with the Bishop's office to bring on an interim rector and then begin an assessment process and search for a new rector, which is anticipated to take 18 months.
King of Peace's founding pastor is The Rev. Frank Logue. Frank is involved in the local community. Frank is a volunteer chaplain for Southeast Georgia Health System's Camden campus in a rotation with other area pastors. He is a past Vice President and past Treasurer of the Camden Christian Ministerial Association and served three non-successive terms as President of Habitat for Humanity of Camden County. He was the 2008-2009 president of Camden County High School Theatre Boosters.
Frank writes a religion column for the Tribune and Georgian. He is also an adjunct faculty member at Valdosta State University's Kings Bay Center where teaches Fundamentals of Philosophy, Religion and Culture and World Religions.
Born in Montgomery, Alabama, where he lived for 6 years, Frank grew up in Marietta, Georgia, having moved there in 1969. A 1984 graduate of Georgia Southern University, Frank worked as a newspaper photographer for two small daily newspapers in Georgiathe Warner Robins Daily Sun and the Rome News-Tribune. He married Victoria Steele in 1985, and the two spent two months in the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal on their honeymoon. In 1991, Frank and Victoria went full-time as freelance writer-photographers, writing books and magazine articles. Their seven books include Georgia Outdoors and The Appalachian Trail Backpacker. Frank also worked as a Contributing Editor for Shutterbug magazine.
In 1995, Frank responded to a deeply felt, too long ignored call to the ministry. A discernment process within the Episcopal Church confirmed that call to full-time ministry. Frank entered the Virginia Theological Seminary in the fall of 1997. While there, Frank worked as a seminarian at two area churches, including assisting with the creation of a new church—Church of the Spirit in Alexandria, Virginia. He also took part in summer internships with the Anglican Church in Tanzania and St. Elizabeth's Hospital, a large mental hospital in Washington, D.C.
In May of 2000, Frank was graduated with honors from seminary and he and Victoria bought a home in Camden County and moved down with their then nine-year-old daughter, Griffin. The Logues continue to enjoy the outdoors and travel. Victoria most recently served as the editor of Georgia's Coastal Illustrated, and is currently writing freelance. She is a retreat leader and a certified labyrinth facilitator. Griffin is heading to Columbus State University in Columbus, Georgia as a freshmen majoring in theatre performance.
All three of the Logues are actively involved in the Episcopal Diocese of Georgia. Griffin has served on the Diocesan Youth Commission and been involved in many diocesan youth programs. Victoria serves on Diocesan Council. Frank serves on the Commission on Ministry where he is the Examining Chaplain for Scripture. He has also served on numerous retreat weekend teams including New Beginnings, Happening and Cursillo. Frank and Victoria put on a successful series of three spirituality retreats in 2007-2008 called Journey to Wholeness.
The Logues hiking experience includes hiking the entire 2,150-mile Appalachian Trail together in one six-month hike in 1988. The couple have also traveled extensively in the United States and abroad. Recent trips have included Africa, Europe, Israel, and the Four Corners area of the American Southwest. Frank, Victoria and Griffin spent 11 days traveling along the Nile in Egypt during March of 2004. The photo at right shows the Logues with Victoria's Mom, Laura (at far right) riding camels (they did not just pose on them) with the Great Pyramids at Giza in the background. Some stories and photos from their summer of 2007 trip are online here: Italy and France.
