Where I serve

During my first year as a missionary, I served at the University of Minnesota Duluth. This year, I'm serving at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. You'll typically find me hanging out at the university cafe, the Newman Center, or high-fiving people around campus. I have a pretty cool story about how Jesus has changed my life -- I think you should hear it sometime! Come find me and I'd love to share it with you. 

My Story

I grew up Catholic, but never really made the faith my own until I went to college. there, I joined a bible study as a way to make friends and get involved in the Catholic center at Drake University. Because of my willingness to step out of my comfort zone and joining a bible study, I was given the opportunity to meet some wonderful people who have encouraged me to grow deeper in my faith and to make Jesus the center of my life. This choice has changed my life and is the reason I am now a missionary - something I never thought I would do.

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. 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.
