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

Where I serve

After four incredible years at Virginia Tech, God has called me to go where I have not gone before: the great state of Massachusetts.  I am beyond excited to head to the University of Massachusetts at Amherst to be a witness for Christ on campus and to deeply invest in the lives of students.   

My Story

 When I first entered college, I had one goal in mind: I wanted to study to be the best engineer I could be, to innovate technologies that made a difference in people’s lives, that left the world a better place. I wanted to 'Invent the Future'.  

But God had other plans. It wasn't too long until I got involved in the Catholic campus ministry through the invitation to join a Bible study from a missionary on campus during my freshman year.   For the first time in my life, I had a group of people outside my family with whom I could actively share my faith and with whom I could strive to grow in virtue with.  Some of my greatest and most authentic friendships I have ever had started in that small group (five of the six of us are pictured below).   

My involvement in the ministry expanded from there as I took on leadership positions and as I came to know God more personally.  If I could summarize everything that I had learned throughout my participation in campus ministry it would be this: the value of relationships.  It is through the relationships that I have made in the past 4 years that I came to know God, to form the most important relationship of all.  And I have the incredible opportunity to give my all to forming those valuable relationships and leading those I encounter to Christ as a missionary. 

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.  Three of those incredible individuals are pictured with me below.  Despite coming from different places, having vastly different interests, and meeting Christ at different points in our lives, God has called us all to serve Him as FOCUS missionaries this upcoming year.  In our journey towards a deeper relationship with God and towards accepting our call to serve, we all did share one key factor. Our lives were changed by the outreach and love of other FOCUS missionaries, missionaries who were only able to give of themselves in a radical way because they were financially supported by a team of individuals such as you.  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.
