Tammie Friberg

Founder | Executive Director

Tammie helped to launch Equip Disciples and serves as Executive Director and on the Board of Directors. When you contact us, she is likely to be the person you'll hear from first.

She has been motivated from her youth up to be a disciple of Christ and to disciple others in the faith. A gifted teacher, she carefully considers her audience and regularly motivates men and women, laypeople and church leaders, to follow and serve Christ more faithfully.

Tammie became a Christian when she was in high school, and immediately pursued a path of growth and sharing her faith. In college, she led Bible studies for fellow musicians and international students. After graduation, she married Joe, her high school sweetheart, and individually and jointly they have taught classes of youth and adults both in and outside of church. She has taught and written materials for women's discipleship groups, Sunday School, missionaries with Wycliffe Bible Translators who are on furlough, Bible classes at Christian Women's Job Corps, classes of internationals, home Bible studies, and more.

Tammie faithfully teaches her children, and the family has an established time of Bible reading, worship, and prayer each evening. Tammie and Joe have three children ages seven to fifteen. Each has come to know and love the Lord, and are actively serving the Lord by assisting in classes for younger kids or helping with computers and media, according to the gifts and talents God has given to them.

Since high school, Tammie has participated in and led mission trips involving youth and adults in cross-cultural ministry. Her passion is to see participants engaged in spiritual ministry, enlarging God's Kingdom and building up the Body of Christ. She has served in Minnesota and Wisconsin, Brazil, Honduras, Mexico, Costa Rica, Rwanda, and DR Congo.

Tammie is also a talented violinist with an undergraduate music education degree from West Texas State University, and continues to use her musical talents in church orchestras, playing violin duets with Joe, and on occasion on the mission field.

Tammie has a Masters of Divinity with Biblical Languages from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. She values the foundation this background provides in all her teaching opportunities.

Tammie and her family are members of First Baptist Church of Arlington, Texas. She has served in a variety of ministries, including women's discipleship, children's choir, and various mission ministries. She currently teaches in a couple of adult Bible study classes, teaches Bible study for internationals, and plays in the orchestra.
