Frank Fullin is an attorney who has been active in the Stewardship Employment Ministry since its inception. He is currently serving as the president of the board. Frank has a passion for the unemployed because his own life experience caused him to lose his company during the mortgage crisis of 2008 while he was suffering from a brain tumor that prevented him from working and ultimately led to his losing his home in foreclosure.
Frank is the father of five and currently resides in the Hocking Hills after having spent the previous 25 years in the Westerville area where he and his wife raised their family and where he was active in his church and in the community.
E. Dino Carfagna Sr.
E. Dino Carfagna Sr. is president of Carfagna’s Inc. and the Carfagna Family Companies. He has been on the board of the Steward Employment Ministry for going on 5-years. His interest in the Ministry became from talking to his friend Deacon Mickey Hawkins whom was already on the board. He felt he could bring to the table his experience in the corporate world some of the difficulties people go through in the hiring process
because of their lack of knowledge in the way businesses look at potential hires.
Dino and his wife Terri have been parishioners of St. Paul Catholic Church for 44-years and have raised 4-boys. They have watched them also go through this process and are proud of the way they daily have approached their own jobs and succeed. Being approached daily by people looking for employment is the main reason for his interest in this ministry and it’s importance.
