He enjoys spending time with his girls, doing building projects at home and with friends, and kicking tires on cars (but not working on them!). He plays music wherever and whenever he gets a chance, tinkers with guitars and other music gear, writes, reads, and makes people have long conversations with him about all of it.

  • Stuart Fritz

    Children's Pastor,  SFRITZ@macfmc.org

    Stuart seeks to come alongside the Holy Spirit to transform children to Christlikeness. In preparation for this, he attended and graduated from Central Christian College with a bachelor's in Student Ministry (2016). During his four years of school he attended, volunteered, and interned with Mac Free. When he is not telling stories about Jesus to children, you will find Stuart watching 80's flicks, taking bike rides to Sonic with friends, or listening to My Epic while reading C.S. Lewis. He is excited for this opportunity to pastor the children of this church, to build relationship with families, and to share Christ's message to the community.

    Hello, my name is Karolyn Moore. I have been married to Kerrey for 36 years, we have 4 children, Kerrey Jr., Kandace, Arik and Jaquelynn. Kerrey Jr. has 2 girls – Hannah and Mackenzie; and his girlfriend Nikki has 2 children – Hadley and Jenika. Kandace is married to Daine and they have 3 children – Bella, Luke and Logan. Jaquelynn is married to Seth and they have one little guy – Edison. Arik waits for us in heaven – We look forward to seeing him again.

    We enjoy our family very much. Camping and game times are the best. Kerrey loves to fish but I won’t bait my hook, take the fish off the hook or clean it. I will cook and eat the fish. Kerrey also likes to smoke meat of all sorts, and I of course love to help by eating it!
