Frank Brougher went on to pastorships in Spokane, Wash., and Des Moines, Wash., before church officials back in Glendale began to reach out to him to return to First Baptist as associate pastor alongside his aging father.
“It’s been a very pleasant surprise that this is the last church of my career,” Frank Brougher said. “I really thought that I would remain as I grew up as ‘Dr. Brougher’s son.’ But that hasn’t been it. And there is a really difference in my theology and my approach.”
And Glendale congregants saw it fitting for him to be the one to guide the church as the elder Brougher neared the end of his career.
