Pastor Fred

Pastor Alfred DaCosta; aka Pastor Fred, Associate Pastor

Pastor Fred graduated from Union College in 2018 with a Bachelor’s degree in Religion. His education began in the field with a voluntary position as a Sabbath School teacher for a small group of earliteens whom he taught for 6 years. He continued to mentor those kids as youth director and later as an elder of the church. It was around that time that the position for a Bible worker became available in Nebraska City, NE. It was there that training continued under Pastor Thure Martinsen on church function, administration and pastoral care. After a year and a half in this position, the church encouraged him to finish his degree. After much prayer and financial support, it became a reality.

Alfred is married to Dennise and they have a 6 year old son, Moses. In Alfred’s spare time, he enjoys, cooking native Jamaican dishes, spending time with the family, podcasting, performing improv and playing the harmonica.
