Reflections: In Memory of Dr. Fred Wolfe at His Passing

Written by Karen Brewer, Publisher

Please join me in praying for the family of Dr. Fred Wolfe, a longtime Pastor of several churches and an evangelist, whose earthly life has been ended by Covid but whose life in heaven will never end.
When I interviewed Dr. Wolfe in 2006 and wrote a story about his life and ministry, I asked him how he would like to be remembered, and he told me, "I want to be remembered as a man whose life glorified God -- the One who created me, the One who redeemed me, and the One who gives me life. I want my life to glorify God, glorify Jesus -- That's the bottom line."

The South Carolina native served as a Pastor for 40 years, including 25 years at Cottage Hill Baptist Church in Mobile, Alabama (from 1972 to 1997), before founding his Barnabas ministry and becoming a full-time evangelist in 1997. He founded and became Pastor of Luke 4:18 Fellowship in Mobile, Alabama in 2008.
Dr. Wolfe served as a guest writer for The Christian View magazine, with two of his sermons, "What to Do When You Don't Know What to Do" and "The Ministry of Jesus to the Brokenhearted" published in print and online in The Christian View. After the sermons were published online, Lydia Criswell, Dr. Wolfe's assistant at Luke 4:18 Fellowship, contacted me by e-mail to let me know that a lady living in Illinois had found those messages on The Christian View magazine's website and had called Dr. Wolfe's office in Alabama. "Let me say how much we appreciate your ministry," Mrs. Criswell wrote, and added, "We have been contacted by a lady in Illinois who read the 'What to Do When You Don't Know What to Do' message and said it saved her life. She called our church office in Mobile and wanted Bro. Fred to know how much it meant to her to read his message online."
His messages and his influence for Jesus will live on, even after he has passed on to heaven.
Please join me in remembering the family of Dr. Fred Wolfe (Brother Fred) in the days to come.
