|Rev. Dr. RONALD B. FRITTS - Pastor |
Pastor Ron grew up in Erie, PA. He is the middle of five children and has all the symptoms of being the middle child. He grew up attending church every Sunday and made a decision to follow Jesus when he was eight years old. Unfortunately, by the time he entered high school and without a strong youth group, he drifted from the Lord and spent high school, college and several years after college wandering in the darkness. Then, at the age of 25, he met a couple of men his age who were Christians. They befriended him, showed Christian love to him, and introduced him to Jesus. Since that time, he has devoted his life to knowing and serving Jesus Christ, and seeking to help others enter a personal relationship with Jesus. Ron earned a B.A. in psychology from Wilkes University, a Master of Divinity in Pastoral Counseling and Psychology from Ashland Theological Seminary, and a Doctor of Ministry in Christian Leadership and Spiritual Formation. “I am thankful for the privilege of pastoring GraceWay Church, a joyful, loving, serving and welcoming family. There’s still room for you!"
