Where I serve

Currently, God has called me to serve at the University of Alabama for my second year on FOCUS staff. I had the opportunity to see Him work in the hearts and lives of so many students last year, and I am so humbled to be able to stay in Tuscaloosa to continue my work with FOCUS.

My Story

While I was attending Auburn University, my life was changed because I gradually encountered Christ through many incredible people. I saw these people who had a light that I desired, many of these being FOCUS missionaries. Once they began to invest in me, I began to see fully the beauty of not only the Catholic Church but also what spreading the Gospel of Christ actually means. I NEEDED to commit my life to following Christ and helping others to do the same.

FOCUS, an organization that centers its work around the Great Commission in Matthew's Gospel, was the perfect entity to form me and guide me in this mission to share the Gospel. Every time I learn more about the mission of FOCUS or have the ability to talk to the leadership in FOCUS, I am more and more inspired and confident that this organization will change the world for Christ in a tangible way.

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.

If you are unsure of supporting this mission, either financially or through your prayers, I encourage you to watch the "Why FOCUS" video below. It is an incredible testament to what we do, why we do it, and how it could change the world. I would be honored it you join me in this effort to change the world for Christ by supporting me.
