Where I serve

I have been blessed to serve these past two years at West Virginia University. Thanks to the hills of Morgantown, my leg muscles are growing stronger by the day, but my faith is growing stronger yet. Going out onto campus - whether the Mountainlair or athletic fields - and engaging students in their faith has been a tremendous blessing. I am excited to help students realize the most important decision they make is not what clubs they join, who they date or how many hours they study. It is the extent to which they allow Christ into their lives. Just as Christ transformed my life in college, I know He has big plans for the Mountaineers!

My Story

Upon enrolling in a university 15 times larger than my entire hometown, it was easy for me to lose my sense of identity as a freshman. Four years later as a senior, however, there was no question as to where I belonged - I was rooted firmly in Christ. I never would have come to this peace and joy, however, without FOCUS. 

At an age where most students must decide whether to engage their faith or abandon it, a friend who had recently accepted a position with FOCUS encouraged me to visit the Newman Center - where I encountered students living out the faith I had merely learned about for twelve years. I came to know the peace and joy of Christ through FOCUS Bible studies and discipleship, which inspired me to seek Him in the Sacraments, daily prayer, Sacred Scripture, fellowship, and mission. Determined to lead other university students to this same life-giving love, I said yes to becoming a FOCUS missionary. I am excited to serve students and teammates alike in my third year at WVU, as embark on my second year as Team Director!

Your Impact

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 through this mission.  FOCUS missionaries are responsible for fundraising 100% of their mission budgets in order to 1) live with a team of missionaries, 2) be radically available for Bible studies and discipleship, and 3) provide scholarships for retreats, mission trips and conferences. I am excited to invite you into this mission and welcome the opportunity to further discuss my mission vision and financial goals with you.
