Frank Buchman was born to Franklin and Sarah Buchman in Pennsburg, Pennsylvania on June 4, 1878. He earned his undergraduate degree from Muhlenberg College in 1899, continuing his theological training at Mt. Airy Seminary in 1899 to 1902. After seminary and ordination he served as a Lutheran minister in Overbrook, Pennsylvania from 1902 to 1905. From 1905 to 1909 he served as the founding director of the first Lutheran settlement house in Philadelphia. A disagreement with the governing board led to his resignation and an extended trip to Europe that led to a major change in his life's work.
