Fred Fritschle - Yokefellow

In chapter four of his epistle to the Philippians, the apostle Paul uses the work “yokefellow” to describe the godly relationship and unique partnership that fellow believers share together because of the love of Christ – those who “…labored with me in the gospel”. 

The Greek work ‘suzugos” means to be co-yoked. The word implies one who is yoked in harness with another, the two working as a team. 

True yokefellows abound in producing fruit, and in helping others to reap an abundant harvest of souls.  Yokefellows rejoice in helping to enhance the fruitful accounts on other’s behalf.  Everything they do contributes to the furtherance of the Gospel of the Lord. 

There is no one who epitomizes this concept to our gospel community more than Fred Fritschle!  Fred exuberantly embraced the care and maintenance of our grounds and facilities.  He is readily available to assist with preparing and configuring our facilities for many ministries that meet with us.   

Fred’s willing heart and dedicated hands exhibits a true, modern day yokefellow. 

Fred may be contacted at 352-636-1102 or Fred@christcommunityfellowhip.org.
