Pastor Fred Fred became the Lead Pastor of Ancient Baptist Church in July 2017. Although life in the 21st century is complex, Fred believes the purpose of life can be summed up in a simple way, using the answer Jesus gave when asked which was the greatest of all the commandments: ” ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ ” Pastor Fred says, “As a pastor, the primary calling in my life is helping people live out their purpose. My passion is teaching God’s word in a manner that is both understandable and relevant. Primary emphases in my ministry are compassion and encouragement. I like to see myself as a ‘player-coach’ who walks among others in the church and not above them.”
