Hyphen (College & Career)

Jesse and Tara Franklin

My name is Jesse Franklin and, together with my beautiful wife Tara, we lead the Hyphen Young Adults Ministry at Faith Temple. Our mission reflects the goal of the General Youth Division of the UPCI: Hyphen seeks to connect 18-30 year olds To Service…With Purpose…Through Resources…For a Mission”.

Whether it is through small group meetings, devotions or various other activities; we seek to help the young adults of Faith Temple to realize their goals in ministry. We seek to help young adults age18 (or senior in high school) thru 30 to reach their full potential and purpose in God. We want you to join us and grow with us! We meet on the second Thursday of the month. It doesn’t matter if you are single, married, have children, or are a single parent. You are welcome here.

My passion for young adults began when I attended college at University of Wisconsin-Platteville. After graduating with my Bachelor of Arts in History, I moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin where I began teaching at Parkway Christian Academy. At Parkway Church, I found a young adults group who got together each week to meet and share the work of God. I found likeminded individuals who were seeking God’s will in their life. Four years ago, I married the love of my life Tar,a and moved to Dubuque. Together we are the Hyphen Coordinators for the state of Iowa, as well as leaders at our church.

If you have any questions pertaining to Hyphen Young Adults at Faith Temple, please feel free to contact me or Tara at 262-894- 5133. We look forward to meeting new people and growing together.
