Fred is an ordained minister and is also involved in jail ministry as a volunteer
chaplain. Each week, Fred heads to jail to bring the Word of Truth to inmates locked
Fred views himself as "on assignment" from the Lord. His job, until he is taken in
the Rapture, or dies - whichever comes first - is to bring the gospel to those who
are lost, in a world that is dying and will pass away. Christ died for the ungodly
and Fred agrees that he is certainly one of those that Christ died for, in order
that he might have eternal life, which is God's gift to humanity. Fred endeavors
to share the good news of Christ's death and resurrection, which was an atonement
for sinful humanity, in order that we might become God's adopted children.
