Philip & Katie Friesen

Philip and Katie Friesen both grew up in the Omaha area and became involved with CEF when they started attending Christian Youth in Action. Both are graduates of Grace University and attend Eagles Heights Church. Philip was led to Christ at age 4 by his parents after hearing a gospel presentation given by fellow board member Lonnie Hofer. Katie accepted Christ at the age of 3. Philip now works as a lighting manufacturers representative with his father in law. Katie is a third grade teacher at Ezra Elementary school. Philip says “Katie and I joined the Local Committee because we have a passion for what CEF does. CYIA is only one function of CEF, but through it CEF has made a huge impact on our lives and continues to do so.”
