Nicole Yonkman

Senior Pastor

Nicole spent all of her growing up years in Maine, where her extended family has called home for many generations.   She is a graduate of Colgate University, with degrees in Religion and Women’s Studies, and the University of Chicago Divinity School, with a Master of Divinity.  She also did extensive coursework toward a PhD in Biblical Studies at UChicago.  Nicole met her husband Todd Yonkman at UChicago and they married in 1996, sharing a life of ministry.  Nicole has served churches in the Chicago area, Dayton, OH, and Providence, RI for over 20 years.
The common theme for all of the ministry settings for Nicole has been church renewal, or reimagining the next step for ministry as the church grows and changes.  All of the churches Nicole has served have experienced significant numerical and spiritual growth.   She is a passionate scholar of the Bible and practical theology.   She is a trained and experienced Teaching Pastor of student ministers through Andover Newton Theological School.

Nicole and Todd are the proud parents of 2 daughters; Fiona is a student at Williams College and Olivia is a student at Miss Porter’s School.  Nicole is a very active person, enjoying various fitness activities, gardening, and knitting.  As a family, they like to go backpacking and biking together.  They have 2 pet house rabbits (Severus and Dobby) and a black lab (Mayleen).

Jane Frogley

Music Director / Organist

Jane Frogley grew up in rural Wisconsin, and she received her bachelors degree in piano and music history from the University of Wisconsin. She also has graduate degrees in music history from the University of California and Oxford University. Although her primary training is in classical music, she loves music of all eras and backgrounds, and one of her favorite things is finding a great new piece to share!
Jane has been a church musician for 20 years now, having served in Congregational, Episcopal, and Catholic parishes before coming to First Church in autumn of 2015. She is so glad to be here! Jane plays the organ and the piano for services, and she directs and accompanies the choir. She also directs the bell choir, which is a new and fun skill!
Jane met her husband, Alain Frogley, when they were in graduate school together. After 11 years in England, Alain was hired by the University of Connecticut School of Music in 1994, and the Frogleys have lived in Storrs ever since. Alain is a tenured professor at the music department, and he is also Associate Dean of the School of Fine Arts. Their son, Nicholas, works for an internet company based in Storrs, and is studying for a computer science degree.
