About the Author
Frank Chase, Jr. was born in 1959. He is the son of Frank Chase and Romaine Berry. He grew up in Baltimore Md. and graduated from Walbrook High School in 1978. After high school, Frank spent four years in the United States Army and during that time became a follower of the Messiah. After completing his tour of duty, he attended Washington State University (WSU) and graduated in 1989 with a Bachelor's degree in Communications and a minor in Sociology. Because Frank believes in education, he pursued religious degrees and graduated from North Carolina College of Theology with a Bachelor of Biblical Studies, a Master of Arts in Theology, and a Doctor of Theology. Frank is a sincere person and has been involved in the church for the majority of his life. When he believes in a cause, he commits himself to gain a full understanding even when it goes against traditional, religious and secular belief systems. He submerged his entire being into the tithe doctrine versus freewill giving for four years to understand the different tithe teaching propagated in the church circuit. Frank's decision to shift from tithing to freewill giving was difficult for him and his family. His decision resulted in wins and losses both emotionally, spiritually and financially. Through tears, fears and not fully knowing what would happen when he took a stand on freewill giving over tithing, Frank decided to move forward and write a tithing book three years later. Anyone who knows Frank will tell you that he has always been an analytical thinker about every aspect of life even from childhood. Frank seeks to start a conversation about mandatory tithe doctrines that make promises and guarantees of health and wealth, but never deliver. After 30 years of tithing, Frank cried out to God for answers unaware that tithing almost sent his family into bankruptcy. God heard his prayer and a Jewish Rabbi answered the call by providing spiritual enlightenment to start Frank on his journey for truth. Frank Chase Jr. has been married for 19 years to Teresa Chase. He is a proud father of six children, Jeremiah, Nathanial, Roketta, Amanda, Emmanuel, and Sara. He has five grandsons, Xavier, Josiah, Aleksey, Jayden and Eli. In his professional career, Frank writes preventive maintenance articles for Army aircraft for the Department of the Army. He is an avid racquetball player, and loves movies, reading and good conversation, and he never shies away from talking about difficult or even controversial subjects.
