Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at Winona State University. I am typically found at the Newman Center, and I am so excited to serve the students in any way I can.

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. When I came to college, I struggled with the lie that I am not good enough and could never hope to be good enough. I desired acceptance and feared rejection so much that I was afraid to be myself. However, God worked through FOCUS missionaries as well as a FOCUS conference called SEEK to radically transform my life. A FOCUS missionary invested in me deeply one-on-one. She challenged me to completely surrender my life to God. She invited me to come on a FOCUS conference, and on this conference there was a big night of adoration where about ten-thousand college students knelt down before the Lord. Jesus called out to me and told me that He loved me and created me to be enough. He showed me all the people He has placed in my life who love me. He then asked me to look upon His cross and see how much He loved me. He then called me to radically live joy for Him. After this encounter with the person of Jesus Christ, my life has been completely transformed. I am no longer afraid to be the person that He created me to be. God has placed on my heart a great desire to be His instrument, and He has called me to be His instrument through the ministry of FOCUS. I am beyond excited to be His 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. 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.
