Where I serve

I'm excited to be heading to Georgia College and State University starting in August of 2016!  It is a change from Lincoln last year, but it also offers some great new opportunities, in an area of the country that I've never really explored!

My Story

My desire to be a Missionary comes from a deep desire to share Christ with everyone I encounter.  My relationship with God has had such a profound impact on my life, and it would be selfish of me to not want to share that with others.  By entering into authentic friendship with students, encouraging them in their own relationships with God, and equipping them to share those things with their classmates and friends, I believe that I can most positively affect change in the world around me.  God has called me to this mission, and I'm excited to be living this adventure every day.

Your Impact

A key part of my mission is relying on others to support me in this mission.  Rather than having the students I serve feed, clothe, and house me, I am supported by your generosity!  The financial support of people like you makes it possible for me to be radically available to students, living with them, eating with them, grabbing beers, seeing movies, without having to worry about whether or not I can afford those things!  Your gifts and prayers make this mission possible, and so your support is helping to change the lives of college students as they grow closer to the Lord.  Thank you so much for any and all help you can provide for this end!

Know, Love and Serve God

We encounter God in an intimate relationship through daily prayer, the sacraments and the Scriptures.

Build Virtuous Friendships

By building genuine friendships, we meet students on a deeper level.

Teach Others to Share Christ

We teach students how to share the gospel, who in turn teach other students how to pass it on …
