Born in Utrecht, the Netherlands, Fritz has studied at Reformed Bible College (Kuyper College) in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Westminster Seminary California and Theological University of Apeldoorn, the Netherlands.

Fritz and his wife Brenda have two children and two grandchildren. They enjoy reading, hiking, and watching or playing soccer.
Deacon Sean Vasas joined Covenant in 2017. The Lord drew him to Himself through a simple proclamation of the gospel. As he began to know the true God, he found himself convinced of the doctrines of sovereign grace and looking for a Reformed congregation to worship with. In the Lord's providence, he found Covenant in his own neighborhood. He has lived in Colorado Springs for most of his life.
