Where I serve

In this third year on staff, God is calling me to return as Team Director at Harvard University. I will continue to live and work near campus, to make myself radically available to Harvard's students. 

My Story

While growing up I had parents who offered all they have and all they are to the Lord. I looked to them, they looked to God, and through them I learned to look to God too.  By this example, I saw the sincere freedom and joy offered through a Christ-centered and Faith-filled life. Upon entering college I joined the Fellowship of Catholic University Students, where I was equipped to give an account for the hope that is in me (1 Peter 3:15). Throughout that time my heart was moved again and again by the virtuous friends that God placed in my life. These friends shared with me their very selves, revealing a personal call to holiness that cut me to the core. It is through the natural love of family and friends that I am capable of experiencing the supernatural love of Christ.  The Church, the sacraments, the Bible; my experience of each of these was augmented by deep and generous human relationships. I am convicted that people are the instruments by which God has chosen to bring all of humanity to His Church, and ultimately, to Himself.

While on Earth, Jesus built authentic relationships, inviting those around Him to abundant life and continuous transformation. Out of love for Him and His Church, I seek to follow Jesus' example. To do so, I have joined FOCUS as a full-time missionary. Through FOCUS, I will lead Bible Studies, carry out one-on-one mentorship, help to plan National conferences, and lead mission trips abroad; all for the sake of building authentic, Christ-centered friendships. It is my hope that these friendships will reveal the all-encompassing power of the Father's love and the sheer goodness of His plan. I am thrilled to share life with the students of Harvard! I hope to present them with a radical invitation to become men and women seeking after the Lord's own heart.

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. In doing so, I will be free to give my undivided self to the Church. I'd be honored to share this mission with you. Although you cannot physically join me, I invite you to go on mission in any capacity that you can. Please contact me to learn about how you can join me in changing the tide of our culture.
