About Fred
Fred is a 2003 graduate of BBC. Having studied in the camping ministries program, he served for five years at Skyview Ranch in Millersburg, Ohio as Program and Guest Services Director. His career has also taken him to Frito Lay, where he was a Route Sales Representative. Fred and his wife Hannah have three sons: Clark (6), Bryce (4), and Gage (3).

Fred and Hannah just completed their first year in Ridley Hall, and are excited about the year ahead. In their apartment Hannah usually has snacks and hot beverages waiting for the guys when they come visit, and often hosts movie nights, Saturday morning pancakes and cartoons, and other fun events. Their goal is to make their apartment feel like a safe place that feels like home where students can visit and relax.

Fred and Hannah are also happy to announce that they are expecting their fourth child in January. Everyone is excited to see if they finally get their little girl, but, of course, will be thrilled either way.

Fred enjoys reading, selling things on Ebay, and is good at impersonating other people.

Favorite verse: Mark 10:45, “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”
