Rev. Freddy Fritz has been the Senior Pastor of Tampa Bay Presbyterian Church since August 2002. Our congregation is blessed by Freddy's entire family, consisting of his wife, Eileen, and their two children (now grown), Lauren and Jon.
Freddy was born in South Africa and came to the United States in 1983 to pursue theological studies at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois. While there, he met Eileen and they married in 1985. Freddy graduated with a Master of Divinity degree in 1986 and the newlyweds moved to Chippewa Evangelical Free Church in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, where Freddy served as the Associate Pastor of Evangelism, Discipleship and Missions. Five years later, Freddy was called to serve the Oakwood Presbyterian Church (PCA) in State College, Pennsylvania, where he remained until his current call brought him to Tampa Bay Presbyterian Church.
Freddy considers it the highest privilege to be serving the Lord at the Tampa Bay Presbyterian Church.
