Hey! My name's Eddie. I'm a FOCUS missionary.

Where I serve

I am a second-year missionary serving at MIT in Boston. I am very excited to evangelize at the top tech school in the nation! When not leading Bible studies or in a deep theological discussion, you will be able to find me playing my trumpet, hiking, biking, swimming, or reading Chesterton and Tolkien.

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. When I was in high school, I was struck by the intellectual depth of Christianity and the joyfully, thrilling peace of a Christian life well-lived. There simply is nothing that fulfills the longings of the human heart for what is noble, beautiful, and great like the pursuit of Christ. This experience with Christ in the Sacraments at my local parish led me to follow Him into seminary. I want nothing more than to bring the joy of life in Christ to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel.  I have a great desire to be dedicated to the work of the New Evangelization: spreading Jesus Christ to the secular world that has lost Him. While in seminary, I felt the Lord calling me to do this in a particular way in the world as His missionary and I am delighted to spread the Gospel with FOCUS. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few (Peter, James, and John). I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world. I consider my whole life centered on winning souls for Christ and transforming the world!

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 so excited to be able to build authentic friendships and touch the lives of students 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.
