Jason and Lisa Frye live in Spokane, Washington, and serve in a variety of rural communities in the Pacific Northwest. They both grew up in a rural church and have served full-time in vocational ministry in rural communities for over twenty years.
“Nobody knows the specific spiritual needs of rural communities like the local churches. We understand the importance and effectiveness of keeping ministry localized, and do all we can to encourage these ministries.”
The rural communities in the Pacific Northwest are demographically diverse. From the old timber-based communities on the west side to the agriculturally-centered communities on the east side, there is a great need for someone to come alongside and encourage the pastors and churches already established in this area.
After seeing the need in their community, the Fryes began working with rural churches and pastors in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. These churches have unique insights into the spiritual needs of the towns they serve, and the Fryes’ heart is to encourage, support, and grow the good work that is already being done.
Jason and Lisa establish relationships with pastors that have limited resources, providing pulpit supply, music ministry, youth ministry assistance, and training for lay ministers. They also offer pastoral care and support through encouragement, fellowship, and prayer.
The Fryes became approved candidates with InFaith in March 2017.
Jason graduated from Multnomah University and has spent over twenty years as a full-time vocational pastor. Lisa is a high school chemistry teacher and supports Jason in ministry.
The Fryes have three college-aged children. They love to go for walks, watch football, and travel, and they enjoy opening their home to friends and family.
