Where I serve

God has called me to serve at Mount Saint Mary's University! I am a first year missionary with FOCUS, working as a Varsity Catholic missionary. That means I work specifically with student-athletes, working with men's sports teams. I will lead Bible studies, meet with young men, and with the grace of God lead them into a lasting relationship with Jesus Christ. The life of a student-athlete is tough and my prayer is that these men continue to look to Christ for strength in their challenges.

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. I heard Jesus' call in my life multiple times but never knew where to turn. After years of avoiding God's call with a life of sin, I found Him in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Throughout a tough college career, I came to the realization that young men need more male leaders to walk with them in their faith journey. 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. I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world. In college athletics is where I felt a great call to serve Jesus Christ and His Church. It was the beginning of where I met the Person of Jesus Christ! I hope to share my story and inspire others to share their encounter with Jesus and bring hope and joy to souls on campus!

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.
