Where I serve

God has called me to serve the college students on the campus of Minnesota State University - Mankato. I am excited to see all that God has in store for this upcoming year. Jesus has done some amazing things in my life and the lives of those around me- I would love to tell you about it!

My Story

As a cradle Catholic I have always been familiar with the faith but, entering into college a time of new experiences and plenty of temptation I started to fall away from the faith I grew with. I decided to listen to the culture rather than my Catholic faith and do things my way. I became engrossed in a selfish way of life.

Thankfully, I met a FOCUS missionary who modeled an entirely different lifestyle than I was used to - she lived for others. Primarily she lived for Jesus. This missionary helped me to encounter Jesus Christ in a new way that ultimately changed my world view and my life.


Your Impact

Serving on a college campus is a great way to impact the world. These students that I am serving will be our future leaders and this time in their life is crucial in their formation. They are looking for fulfillment, validation, and love.

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me make an impact for Christ in this mission. 

I would be honored if you would prayerfully consider partnering with me on this mission. I am confident that God has called me to serve as a FOCUS missionary and I am confident that he has called many people to partner with in his mission. Is he calling you? I would love to learn more about your story and share with you more of mine.
