Pastor Fred joined the Crown Point family as lead pastor in April of 2020. Fred and Ingrid have spent their adult lives doing ministry among people at three churches in the suburban Chicagoland area, and are excited to bring their relational energy to the mission here.
Fred’s passion is to connect the church to her community, developing ministries and leaders that draw people to Christ, then deeper in appreciation and service for Him. He has provided leadership to several regional and international mission efforts, and continues to support church planting efforts in Myanmar (Burma).
Fred loves to preach, cast vision, strategize and collaborate with others to impact lives. He and Ingrid are Canadian by birth and became US citizens in 2014. They have three children, all married, and two terrific granddaughters. Fred is a runner, and hits just enough decent golf shots to play another round.
