Frank Romero Crockett
Assistant Director, Los Angeles Term Program

B.A., Biola University

Résumé in brief and other information:
A graduate of Biola University, Frank joined Azusa Pacific University’s Los Angeles Term program as the Assistant Director in summer 2009. He previously served with the L.A.-based nonprofit organization, Progressive Christians Uniting, where he was the lead organizer for a college and young adult program that engaged young Christians to integrate their faith and values with their commitment to social change and justice. He also served as the education programs coordinator for Middle East Fellowship where he facilitated a service-learning and cultural immersion program in Bethlehem located in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. Frank lived in the Middle East region for two years during the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq subsequent to the 9/11 attacks in New York and Washington, D.C. Two of Frank’s fondest memories are trekking 50+ miles across the Jordan Desert to Bethlehem in time for Christmas and living in Palestine during the 2006 Israel-Hezbollah War. Frank married his best friend, Stephanie Crockett, in a beautiful wedding in the Santa Ynez Valley.  He loves Los Angeles, Lakers basketball, hip-hop, ’80–’90s R&B music, dancing, practicing Arabic and Turkish, grilling, and relaxing at his hillside apartment in Echo Park.
