Where I serve

I am a missionary with the Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS). This year God has called me to go abroad as part of the first international FOCUS campus to reach out to the college students at the University of Vienna in Vienna, Austria! As a missionary, you can typically find me hanging out around Catholic dorm, meeting with students on campus, or playing pickup soccer. A lot of my work is with freshmen male outreach in order to build up a culture for Christ among the new generation of students in Vienna.

The Call

"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age." Matthew 28:18-20

The Team

My Story

I love my work as a full-time college missionary with FOCUS. As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Jesus. My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. 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. During my time on campus, I've been continually amazed by the different souls I've encountered and how they all desire a renewed relationship with God.

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 complete this mission. I've been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus. I would love for you to join me in this mission too. You can help me fulfill this mission for Christ at the University of Vienna!
