Nicole Summerall

Small Groups Staff
On staff since 2016
Nicole grew up here in Columbia where she heard the gospel for the very first time in High School. She attended the University of Missouri and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications.  While there, she was involved with the campus ministry CRU at Mizzou. Being a part of Bible studies and such a great Christian community really helped her grow in her faith. It was at that time she thought God may be calling her into vocational ministry. Also while in college, she met Kermit Summerall on a summer missions project.  They were married 2 years later in 1998. After serving as missionaries to Japan, they returned to the US, had 3 children, and moved back to Columbia for Kermit to work as a pastor at the Crossing. Nicole came on staff part-time with The Crossing in 2016. She has served with the Agape Ministry, the Crossing 20’s, and now the Small group ministry team.  She is thrilled to be working with such good friends and thinks helping people grow in their faith in Christ is the best job out there. In her free time Nicole enjoys exercising, bargain shopping, decorating, and watching stand up comedy. *part-time
