Where I serve
God has called me to serve college students at the University of Tennessee. You'll typically find me hanging out at Golden Roast or on the terrace of the engineering building. Other times you can find me on Pedestrian Walkway reaching out to new people or at the picnics having discipleship. I have a pretty cool story about how Jesus has changed my life -- I think you should hear it sometime! Come find me or give me a call and I'd love to share it with you. :)
As a missionary, my great desire is to lead men to Christ. To share with them the burning furnace of God's love for humanity. I gave God my will and intellect, my desires and passions when I encountered Him in high school. I recognized logically that life without God is meaningless, regardless of what any existential garbage said differently. That made me sad so I opened myself up to any experience of Him and since then I remain affectionately desirous of Him. After searching, I encountered again the beauty of God in the catholic church. The sacraments, the liturgy, the depth of tradition-a clear gateway to deep intimacy with God-has place a fire in my heart to give all that I have to my fellow catholic brother and sisters. I received the call for college ministry when I was a sophomore in college and when I graduated I moved to Tennessee and got to work.
My Life has since been a deep investment in few students. I teaching them to not only be Fathers and husbands and brothers, but SAINTS! And the fire in me must also be in them. If they are striving to be a saint; if I am not striving to be a saint then what are we doing? Welcome to "the story so far".
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've been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I'd be honored to share this mission with you.
