Chad Knudson, Preaching Elder
- I grew up in a Christian home, but did not come to know the Lord until my early twenties.
- I attended Colorado Christian University where I earned my undergraduate degree. After college I went to Southern Seminary to prepare for pastoral ministry (MDiv & ThM).
- Some of my favorite authors are Tim Keller, Graeme Goldsworthy, Don Carson, Greg Beale, John Frame, Herman Bavinck, Geerhardus Vos, Francis Schaeffer, and Cornelius Van Til. These writers have profoundly impacted the way I think about ministry.
- I am married to Roberta and we have four sons.
- One of my favorite passages of Scripture is Luke 24:25-27. And he said to them, “O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer these things and enter into his glory?” And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.
Jim Moore, Family Elder

- I married my wonderful wife, Mandie in the fall of 1996. We have four amazing boys – Joel, Micah, Caleb and Jonah.
- I came on staff at Fremont E Free in April of 2012. For the past 13 years I was the minister of Students at our previous church in Olathe, KS.
- I love the book of Psalm, John and Colossians. I enjoy reading my favorite
authors – John Piper, Tullian Tchividijian, Tim Keller, Jerry Bridges, Francis
Chan, Paul Miller, Mark Driscoll and Kevin DeYoung. I also like listening to music, journaling, biking and watching Nebraska football.
- One of my favorite passages from God’s Word is Psalm 16:11: You make known to me the path of life; in Your presence there is fullness of joy; at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.
Larry Rasmussen, Elder
- I was raised in a Christian home. I accepted the Lord in my early teens at a missionary revival meeting at our country church.
- My wife, Melinda, and I have been married for 33 years and we have 4 children, all 4 are married. Melinda was the girl next door out in the country and we married after college graduation.
- My daily work is farming with my brother and nephew and my oldest son, Matt.
- Through our second son’s (Mark) kidney transplant, which I donated one of my kidneys in 1981, the Lord has taught me to trust, serve and give praise to Him who makes all things possible. The power of prayer and the strength of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ cannot be overstated. It is a part of each day when we focus on Him.
- I enjoy attending events of my children and their spouses and especially events of our 3 grandchildren Cade, Ava, and Julia.
- I enjoy leading a small group where we study God’s Word and develop deeper relationships with the Lord and each other.
- My favorite verses from the Bible are Proverbs 3:5, 6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.”
Jimmy Nolan, Elder
- I am a native of the Washington D.C. area and was raised Catholic.
- The Lord Jesus caused me to be born again May 22nd, 1987 through
the testimony of man I picked up hitchhiking.
- I met my wife Cathy whose is from Valley, Nebraska in the D.C. area in
1991; we were married in 1992 and moved to Nebraska in 1994.
- We have 3 children; J.T., Petra, and Olivia – all Huskers.
- I love the beauty of the Scriptures and appreciate many teachers. I
have benefitted greatly from the ministries of John Piper, Timothy Keller
and D.A. Carson along with the writings of Charles Spurgeon, John
Calvin and Jonathan Edwards.
- I love music, baseball, art, computers and the Bible but not necessarily
in that order.
- My favorite passage of Scripture is Psalm 32:1-2 “Blessed is the one
whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the
man against whom the LORD counts no iniquity, and in whose spirit
there is no deceit.” For in this passage is the greatness and
simplicity of the gospel. That because of Jesus’ sacrifice my
transgressions are forgiven.
