Where I serve

I will serve for the next year in Columbia, Missouri at Mizzou! The Catholic students at the Newman center are motivated and desiring  a deeper relationship with Christ. FOCUS has been at Mizzou for 3 years and already has disciples leading 40 Bible studies with a total of roughly 300 students. I am excited to work with students with such great faith and am looking forward to inviting more students into a relationship with Christ.

My Story

My junior year of college I began going to Confession regularly and started attending daily mass. Over the next couple of years I received a tremendous amount of grace and learned of the "scandalously personal" love that the Lord had for me. I began to desire that everyone learn of this love. During my last semester of college I became involved with FOCUS and realized God was calling me to serve college students. It excites me to be able to help students come into a deeper relationship with Christ. Jesus worked with a few disciples that in turn went out and started the church that we are still a part of today. With FOCUS I will be able to work with a handful of students that will change the culture of Mizzou and the world.

Your Impact

I would not be able to serve students in such a radical way if it were not for my mission partners. Your contributions allow me to spend all of my time working with and investing in students. Thank you for your prayers, support, and sacrifices you make to allow me to do this. It would not be possible without you. Scott Hahn says that "during the celebration of the Eucharist these sacrifices (of the members of the church) are most lovingly offered to the Father along with the Lord's body." Please call me anytime at 832-474-4656.

By building genuine friendships, we meet students on a deeper level.

Teach Others to Share Christ

We teach students how to share the gospel, who in turn teach other students how to pass it on …
