Danielle, Pastor Dan, and Pastor Travis

Pastor Dan Williams

Pastor Dan has served at Crete Berean Church since 2011. He grew up just south of Chicago where his family was involved in a faith mission ministry called Bible Witness Camp. In 1975, he graduated from Moody Bible Institute and that same year, he married his college sweetheart, Dee. Dan and Dee have been in ministry most of their adult lives, serving at Bible Witness Camp, Immanuel Baptist Church in Illinois, and at Camp El Har in Texas. After graduating from Dallas Seminary in 1993, Dan served as pastor at Chadron Berean Church before coming to Crete in 2011. Dan and Dee have three adult children (Jason, Heidi, and Melody) and seven grandchildren. Dan enjoys photography, woodworking, football, and spending time with his family. Dan's ministry focus areas are preaching, teaching, administration, adult ministries and counseling.

Pastor Travis Frederick

Travis loves spending time with his family, drinking coffee, cheering on the Huskers, Chiefs, and Royals, and pretty much anything outdoors. He grew up in Kansas City, MO, and later Sabetha, KS. He trusted Christ as his Savior at the young age of 6 with the help of his best friend and an Awana leader. Even at a young age, God placed a love for ministry in his heart. Both Travis and Melody attended Calvary Bible College in Kansas City, MO where they met while serving on the traveling singing team, Evidence, representing the college. Travis earned a degree in Youth Ministry and Melody a degree in Radio Broadcasting. Melody worked at Calvary's radio station, Calvary 88.5 FM as an afternoon radio host and Travis worked for a landscape company. Travis and Melody were married in March of 2008. Since then, they have had four children: Brogan, Raegan, Joelle, and Jazlyn. Travis and Melody moved to Columbus, NE in 2009 where Travis served as the Associate Pastor of Youth and Family for 6 years. In 2015 God moved them to Crete where Travis has developed a new set of skills in carpentry and handyman work. He has enjoyed working in the community and alongside some great mentors. His heart for ministry has never diminished, and he is excited to once again serve full time in the community and church that have become home. Pastor Travis leads our worship, youth and children, and small groups. He can be reached at 402.826.3134 ext. 2.
