Pastor Mike Frie
Pastor Mike is the Lead Pastor and Visioneering Team Director for Metro Harvest Church in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin. www.metroharvest.com
He sensed a call to ministry at a very early age. He received Christ as his Lord and Savior while watching the 700 Club in the summer of 1975, and immediately began to be discipled by Pastor Howard and Arlene Wright. At age 23, he moved to Israel to continue his studies, living on a Jewish settlement in northern Galilee. In 1985, he returned to his hometown in Cedarburg Wisconsin working as a finish carpenter, and married his wife Michelle in August of 1987. Both of them served for several years at Alliance Bible Church in Mequon, Wisconsin under Pastor Bill Ronzheimer. In 1990, the NRP (Network of Related Pastors) sent a pastor to the Metro Milwaukee area from Louisiana to plant a new church. The Fries sensed the Lord leading them to come along side several families and assist in the effort, and were released to do so. A clear call to the pastorate came in November 1993, while attending an International Cell Church Conference at Bethany World Prayer Center www.bethany.com in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Pastor Mike was ordained by the NRP (Network of Related Pastors) in June of 1994, and the mantle of leadership of the church plant was passed on to him. The church continued to meet at North Junior High in Menomonee Falls until spring of 2003, when they purchased and moved into the newly renovated facility on County Line Road in the Falls. From 1994 to the present, Pastor Mike and Michelle have been emphasizing leadership development and spiritual growth amongst the members. 2011 is seeing an increased emphasis in community outreach.  They pastor a  growing, multi-cultural, multi-generational congregation and have a vision to see the spiritual climate of the entire Metro Milwaukee area change through life-giving churches and relationships. Pastor Mike serves on the Network of Related Pastors Executive Team www.nrpastors.com  as a national elder with seven other men, on Pastor Larry Stockstill's national team as a state leader for Remnant, a call for ministerial integrity in America, www.remnant.bethany.com , and is relationally connected to pastors both locally and regionally. Pastor Mike enjoys reading, woodworking, and is a licensed pilot. He and his wife Michelle have three children, Elisha, Aaron, and Olivia.
