Where we serve

After serving at Boise State University, God has called us to the University of Nebraska - Kearney. Nicollette is serving as the team director of four incredible missionaries who are all in their second year with FOCUS, including Alfred! The town of Kearney offers tons of entertainment, but its quaint feel makes it easy to encounter students at restaurants and small shops! We've been welcomed so well and look forward to serving in our midwest roots once again. We are so excited to meet and lead others on campus and welcome them into our home and growing family! Our team is pictured below (from L to R): Tori, Garrett, Nicollette, Alfred, and Megan, with our sweet Amalia in the middle!

Our Story

Our lives were very carefully crafted by the Father to bring us to Him, to each other, and to FOCUS. Growing up, the Catholic faith was important to us, but not at the center of our lives. Going to college, we began to explore our faith more deeply through bible study, discipleship, and taking advantage of the opportunities our Newman Center had to offer us. After we began dating, both of us changed career paths within the year. Nicollette graduated with a double major in Psychology and Human Development and Family Sciences with the intent to go on to graduate school for counseling, while Alfred graduated with a major in Animal Biomedical Sciences with the intent to either attend medical or veterinary school. But as Nicollette's senior year began, she felt a deep desire to answer the call of Christ to be a soldier for Him and to evangelize a world that was so far from the Lord's heart. While serving during her first year, Alfred felt a similar call to answer the need of the Church and primarily the need of FOCUS to have more missionaries serving on a college campus. Serving as full-time missionaries during our first year of marriage was such an incredibly beautiful and fruitful experience, and we are so excited to continue to live out our vocation in Kearney as a family of three! Below are most of the missionaries who serve in our region (Nebraska and Kansas) during our annual New Staff Training last summer at the University of Mary!

Your Impact

When we answered the call to join FOCUS, we made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help us through this mission. We've been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with us as we serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with us, please let us know of the best way to reach you and we will schedule an appointment. We would be honored to share this mission with you! In partnering with us, know that we are committed to praying for you and your intentions daily and sharing the joys of mission with you through newsletters and email!
