Where I serve

God has called me to serve the students at the University of Mary in Bismarck, North Dakota. I am on a team of six full-time missionaries who serve at UMary. God continues to do amazing things through our efforts. We have been able to share the Gospel with students who haven't met Jesus before and our student leaders are always striving to grow in faithfulness and fruitfulness. 

My Story

"And Jesus came and said to them, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.'" Matthew 28:18-20

I did not take my faith seriously during my first three semesters in college. I never asked God what He wanted for my life because I didn't know how much He loves and cares for me. From my perspective, I thought God was waiting for me to stop sinning and then He would love me. The walls around my heart began to crumble when I started reading the New Testament on my 20th birthday. I had some great people in my life who witnessed to me what a relationship with Jesus looked like. I was open to reading scripture on my own because I understood that some people were experiencing God's love and maybe I could too if I started to make an effort. Since that time, I have continued to meet amazing people who authentically love me and want nothing more than to help me become a saint. God doesn't stop fighting for us and he will always provide us with what we need for this life. 

I love sharing more of my testimony in person so please let me know if you would ever want to hear more!

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. I am giving my life to the mission by serving on campus while others can serve the mission by giving. I have an amazing team of mission partners who support me as I serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with me, please contact me by e-mail or phone. I'd be honored to meet with you to share the good news of what God is doing in and through us.
