      South Omaha: In 1893 S. A. Beranek and wife established a Sunday and sewing school, coming from Omaha to participate. During Rev. Dobias's time the congregation was founded and the church built on Twenty-first street between Q and R. After his departure in 1906 V. Miniberger, then studying theology in Omaha, took care of the congregation. In 1909 he moved to Racine, Wis., and his successors were: Rev. B. A. Filipi and Miloslav Filipi (then studying theology in Omaha). In 1912 Rev. Emanuel Kalina, newly ordained and coming from New York, became incumbent. He was earnestly active and improved the church building, but in 1918 he entered the services of the Young Men's Christian Association. Rev. V. Cejnar of Omaha then took care of the congregation until Rev. Charles Joseph Koukol, the present incumbent, took charge. Rev. Koukol was born in Kostelec nad Orlici, Bohemia, in 1883 and came to this country in 1895, without his parents. He lived a year in Jessup, Pa., where his eldest brother was pastor of the first Slovak Presbyterian church in the U.S. Then he lived for several years in Moorestown, N.J. He studied as follows: 1909: Oberlin Academy; 1909: Oberlin Seminary, Slavic Department; 1912: Carroll College, Wisconsin, where he attained the degree of Bachelor of Arts; 1913: Chicago Theological Seminary, Bachelor of Theology; 1913-1914: Philosophical Faculty in Prague, Bohemia. In 1915 he was ordained a minister of the Presbyterian Church and until 1921 was minister of the Bohemian Presbyterian church in Phillips, Wis., where was organized also a Bohemian Presbyterian Church of Jan Hus. In 1921 he came to South Omaha, the incorporated title of his church being: Presbyterian Church of the Bohemian and Moravian Brethren
