Where I serve

By providential circumstances, God has blessed me with the opportunity to serve at the University of Nebraska-Kearney. I will be one of two first-year male missionaries (with three female team members) for FOCUS's first year at this campus! I have seen first-hand the dissatisfaction of young people today in search of the infinite that their hearts desire. Given the ideologies, enticements, and life decisions students are facing, I believe college campuses are the front-lines for the battle of our generation. FOCUS's mission is to make Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, known--especially to those souls just waiting for someone to share His message of Love and Truth. With God's grace, it is this mission I intend to give myself at Kearney. "And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it" (John 1:5).

My Story

Growing up in Fort Collins, Colorado with a practicing Catholic family, I went through a time of temptations early on in high school. By studying more about the faith, encountering genuine friendships, and finding a fulfillment of meaning and desire, I enthusiastically dove into a deeper spiritual and apostolic life. After 3 semesters of college, I left for France and lived with a religious community there. After 16 life-changing months, I realized my calling was closer to the missionary fronts. I came back to the United States and a few months later was hired as a FOCUS missionary!

In the midst of the distractions and noise of our society, sometimes I want to yell "God IS!" He is the answer I was looking for; He is the answer of meaning, desire, love, and friendship that we all are looking for. It is my heart's desire to be an outlet of God's love, developing sincere friendships with students that will lead them to a deeper encounter with Christ.

Your Impact

"And may my God supply all your want, according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus" (Phil 4:19).  When the Lord called me to become a campus missionary, it also meant becoming dependent on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners. He asked me for a radical “YES”: abandonment to the generosity of others. If you may be interested in partnering with me, please let me know the best way to reach you and we will schedule an appointment. Time and again beautiful relationships are formed through mission partnership; I would be honored to welcome you on this mission with me.
