Life After Newman: Evangelizing in the Real World

Friday, March 1, 7:00pm at the UNL Newman Center

We will have 7 UNL Alumni joining us to share about their "real world" evangelization experiences!

Below are some teasers and profiles of a few of the alumni who will be joining us!

“Seeing how challenging it is to reach out to people once they are outside of college makes us glad we took every opportunity we had when we were in college to reach out to our peers.”

Katie Madsen was ASUN student body vice president and homecoming queen while she was a student at UNL. After she graduated, she became a FOCUS missionary. Matt Ostegrenwas a member of AGR, a FOCUS student leader, and former seminarian. They will be married this summer and live in Holdredge, NE.

Becky Deaver, former Newman Board Exec Member and Choir Director, lives in Holdridge, NE with her husband Luke and four children She says,

"We've implemented a Pub Theology in an attempt to evangelize to those in our own parish who might not feel as comfortable in church. It's been very successful. We also did a women's retreat before Christmas. Luke and I are very strategic about the activities and committees we are on in the parish in order to reach out to those who could impact the most amount of people."
