Board of directors
It's my pleasure to join with Josh Fletcher and Pursue Christian Living. My being a part of this ministry is a calling based out of what God has shown me through the passion Josh has to spread the good news of the Gospel. The team that He has put together will support Josh as he begins this amazing journey so that many lives will be impacted and changed.
Tom has known the Fletchers for about 10 years now. Tom says, “Josh has inspired me personally to grow my faith, inviting me to join men's groups at Crossroads, two of which I am still active in today. My wife Mara and I have supported Josh in his previous ministry, and I was honored to join him in this next season. I think the pandemic of 2020 has shown us the importance of caring for those who care for others. We know that God has brought Pursue Christian Living into existence at just the right time to do just that!
Nancy Friend is the Director of Missions & Outreach at Crossroads Church in Concord, NC. She is married to Chip and they have 2 children, Matt (married to Sharon) and Leigh (married to Jason Garcia), and 3 grandchildren, Phebe, Kyleigh and Paxton Garcia. Nancy states that the reason she committed to join the Pursue Christian Ministry Board of Directors is because she believes in the vision and purpose for the ministry. "I recognize the passion that Josh Fletcher has for teaching, equipping and encouraging believers so that they can minister to others. It is critical that they minister from a place of rest and relying on the promises of God. I believe the ripple effect from this ministry will impact generations to come."
Colleen is married to John and they have 3 daughters – Anna, Erin and Rachel. They have known Joshua since they began attending Crossroads Church in 2011. Her and John were able to take one of Joshua’s classes prior to his family going out into the mission field. Their family has supported them both financially and in prayer. She is excited to come along side Joshua in this new venture to encourage and teach pastors and missionaries around the world.
