Pastors for Oklahoma Kids Names First Executive Director

Edmond, OK – The Board of Directors of Pastors for Oklahoma Kids is pleased to announce the appointment of Pastor Clark Frailey as the non-profit organization’s first Executive Director. Pastors for Oklahoma Kids began as a shared dream of three Oklahoma City metro pastors in 2016 to advocate for public school children, their teachers, and communities across the state.

Over the past two years Pastor Clark has become an increasingly active voice advocating for the nearly 700,000 children in public schools across the state of Oklahoma.

“It is an honor to share Pastors for Oklahoma Kids’ mission to promote the right of every child in Oklahoma to a quality and equitable public education,” Frailey said. “The strategic vision our pastors have to strengthen, encourage, and foster cooperative relationships between Oklahoma churches and our local public schools has the potential to shape our state in a positive way for generations to come.”

Frailey serves as Lead Pastor at Coffee Creek Church in Edmond with over 18 years experience as a senior pastor. During this time he has served in cities across Oklahoma and consistently sought ways for the churches he has led to be involved in their local public schools.

“My consistent approach to our work with schools has been a ‘here to serve’ attitude. When we volunteer and advocate without agenda, with no ulterior motives – schools, staff, and students benefit,” added Frailey.

A native Oklahoman, Pastor Clark graduated from public school in Olive, Oklahoma, and earned a BA from Oklahoma Baptist University and an M.Div. from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
