He graduated magna cum laude from National University in 1989 with a degree in business administration, then spent the next two years with the national leadership of Athletes in Action, the sports ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ.
In 1994, Frank graduated summa cum laude from Talbot School of Theology at Biola University with a Master's degree in philosophy of religion and ethics.
