Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at Murray State University in Murray, Kentucky for this upcoming school year. You'll typically find me hanging out at the university cafe, the Newman Center, or talking with people around campus. I have a pretty cool story about how Jesus has changed my life -- I think you should hear it sometime! Feel free to contact me and I'd love to share it with you. :)

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. The desire started at SEEK 2015 in Nashville, when I had an encounter with the Lord that I never had before. With me there where over 10,000 Catholic college students there and each one them experienced the Lord in a different, profound way. Leaving that conference we were all filled with joy and I wanted to share that experience with the Lord and the joy that came from it with other students through FOCUS. For the next couple years that desire grew and the Lord gave me a lot of peace about applying and eventually joining staff.I cannot wait to get on campus and walk with students on their journey towards Christ. 

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'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.
