Harry Fritz was elected as the IMN Western Area Presbyter in July of 2015; he serves as the Senior Pastor of Valley View Christian Fellowship (VVCF) in Tacoma, WA since May 2010. When the former pastor of VVCF announced his retirement, the members of the church asked him to find a German-speaking pastor for their bi-lingual congregation. Harry was discovered doing ministry among Germans in North Carolina and graciously accepted the call by VVCF to become their pastor. Prior to relocating to NC, Harry was an assistant to the German District’s Superintendent In the 1990’s while doing ministry in Wisconsin and working bi-vocationally. His education in business and ministry has provided opportunities to lead Christian organizations and be a top manager in secular companies. Harry feels the spiritual calling to be a “Barnabas” for the fellowship – to encourage and mentor those who seek to serve the Body of Christ.
