Where I serve

This is my first year as a FOCUS missionary and I am honored to be serving at Seton Hall University in New Jersey.

My Story

I grew up in Fairfax, Virginia. I was raised Catholic, went to church every Sunday and even went to Catholic school until I went to college. Growing up my faith was only part of my life, just something I maybe sort of believed in because that was what I was told to believe in. This all changed when I went to college at George Mason University. It was within the first week of my freshman that I was invited into a FOCUS bible study, and being the open-minded, down for anything freshman that I was, I said yes. It was in this bible study that I encountered other college students my age striving in their faith, pursuing virtue, and growing in an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. Because of this bible study and the men that were in it, I began asking myself the deeper questions in life: What was my purpose? What is truth? Do I really believe in God?

Through this bible study and other incredible experiences during my freshman and sophomore year of college, I came to deeply encounter Jesus Christ and the hope and love that He brings. Over my next two years of college I continued attending bible study, entered into discipleship, and eventually started leading my own bible study in my senior year. Throughout my time at college, I saw the incredible transformation that God can do with those who give their life to Him, especially within myself. I am honored to serve college students and to help them encounter God like I did in college.
