Fred and Linda met and married while attending college in their home state of Texas. Afterward, they both went on to attend Multnomah Bible College for a one year graduate course.
While completing his studies at Dallas Seminary, Fred and Linda spent a summer ministering in, then communist, Poland. They also helped with a church plant in Texas by starting a youth ministry. Fred then pastored a church in Iowa, and later planted a church in Oklahoma.
In 1986 Fred and Linda were the first missionaries that Antioch sent out. With the Lord’s guidance, in Germany they continue to counsel many church leaders and their wives. They help Germans with planting churches and give established churches new vision. Fred often leads evangelism seminars, preaches, teaches, and participates in community outreaches throughout Germany. In 2009 he earned his PhD in missions from a seminary in Leuven, Belgium (where another Antioch Missionary, Ron Michener, teaches). He has put that to use by teaching at Wiedenest Bible School near Cologne, and most recently, at a seminary in Ukraine, while continuing church ministry in Germany.
