David Fresch - President

David founded Fresch Ministries International (FMI) because he felt God was opening doors for global ministry, and he wanted to be ready to respond to God's leading.  

David has long felt called to international ministry and enjoys meeting believers, our brothers and sisters in Christ, all over the world.  It is amazing to see how God is active in every place among all people and to be a part of His plan for building up His Church.

Currently, David serves as the senior pastor of North Sea Baptist Church in Stavanger, Norway.  Though born in Oklahoma, he moved overseas at a young age due to his father's work in the oil industry, living in the Netherlands, Norway, Oklahoma again, and Texas.  He attended Houston Baptist University where he met Scottie, his wife, and they have two school-aged daughters Lily and Ellie.

David did seminary studies at both Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary as well as Fuller Theological Seminary where he completed a Masters in Global Leadership. 

In addition to his full-time work for the church, David serves as the Director for Empowering Leaders for the International Baptist Convention (IBC).  He also participates on a team of IBC churches, which work together to plant international churches in northern Europe.

His work for Fresch Mininistries is unpaid, so all donations go to fund the work of FMI.  If you have a ministry that you feel FMI could help with, would like to ask David to speak, or are otherwise interested in contacting us, please send David an email at
