Jim Frasure




Born in Dayton, Ohio, on February 29, 1940 to Walter and Beulah Frasure, the first of four sons. Jim became a baptized believer and disciple of Jesus at the age of 12. He graduated from Milligan College in 1962 with a B.A. in mathematics and the University of Cincinnati School of Medicine in 1966 with a Medical Doctor degree. Joyce and Jim were married in 1964. After Jim completed the first year of residency in general medicine, they believed they were called to go to Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) to work with Central Africa Mission in the hospitals that were part of the Christian Church's mission outreach in Rhodesia. They spent 10 years in Rhodesia, had 4 children, and returned to the USA in 1978.

Jim and his family settled in the Ellettsville area in 1978 where they became members of the Ellettsville Christian Church. Jim became an Emergency Room Physician and a partner in Unity Physician Group. Jim continued to practice Emergency Medicine as a Board Certified Emergency Medicine Physician in the Bloomington/Bedford area until his retirement at the end of 2001.

Joyce and Jim have been active members of the Ellettsville Christian Church since 1978. Their children became Christians while living in the Ellettsville area and continue to be active in their Christian walk. Jim has been an elder at ECC for 25+ years, Sunday school teacher for over 25 years, mission's team member, VBS worker, working with the ministry staff in various ways, search committees, and short term mission trips.

Their children are all in medicine in some capacity: their son is a physical therapist, and their three daughters are a nurse practitioner, pediatrician, optometrist in that order. Jim and Joyce are blessed with 8 grandchildren.

Jim is currently an elder at ECC, a trustee of Milligan College in Tennessee, and a director of Christian Homes, Inc. based in St. Louis, MO. Medicine is still in his blood as Jim is the Medical Director of the ambulance service at IU Health Bedford. He has been honored as a distinguished alumnus of Milligan College.

Jim believes that God has continued purpose and work for him in the community and ECC, and his desire is to continue to serve Him at ECC.
