Where I serve

I have been blessed to serve college students specifically at Iowa State University. The Lord has provided us with many sources of opportunity. Students are open to receiving Christ during their time on campus.

My Story

Throughout my first two years at Central Michigan University, I struggled to understand that the Lord wanted a deeper relationship with me. Joining FOCUS helped me understand that I needed to make Jesus the center of my life and there were many people that worked with me along the way. Being in Focus made me realize my desire to surround myself with Christ-centered friends learning more about the gospel. During college, I was blessed to attend the annual FOCUS conferences where I learned more about my faith and gained the tools to live it out as a Son of God. I have been impacted in so many different ways by FOCUS. After hearing the call from God to join staff at FOCUS, I am excited to continue the Lord's work Iowa State and respectfully show the students the joy that I have received since being a part of FOCUS.

Your Impact

I have always heard the saying, "What would Jesus do?" and usually failed to live out my life as Jesus would. Ever since my increased understanding of what it means to be a Christian, I have been wanting to share in life with others in a way that will help them see the love of Christ in an easier way. Through your spiritual and financial support, I will be able to become a missionary to these students and someone who can be a Christ-like example to help them improve their relationship with the Lord. I am so grateful to be given the opportunity to share in this mission with you.
