Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students and I'm so grateful to currently have the freedom to say "Yes." Headed into my second year as a full time Missionary with FOCUS I'll be serving as the Team Director at Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio. I love waking up a missionary each day and knowing that everything I have the chance to do can be done explicitly for the Lord -- It brings me joy to share stories and experiences about what God is doing with students on campus and I'd be delighted to share stories with you any time.

"There is only one tragedy in the end, not to have been a saint." - Léon Bloy 

Building hospitals, homeless shelters, and food banks are all great things but if a person lives 100 years healthy, sheltered, and well fed but never hears the gospel where will he be for the rest of eternity? On college campuses right here in our beloved country we see just that, students who have everything they need here on earth but don't have, or worse they have rejected, a relationship with Jesus Christ. There is a problem far more tragic than any temporal deficiency that exist on every college campus in America and I'm inviting you to join Jesus Christ in fixing it. 

My Story

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. From cradle Catholic to protestant practices, from Wisconsin to Utah, from seminary to wedding bells, yeah life has been crazy and there is no way I could have ever made a better plan for my life. The Lord has done so much and given me such a joy and zeal for souls that I can't help but share it with others. 

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 a time to meet with you, tell you more about the value of this mission, and share with you how you can assist in financially making this mission possible. I'd be honored to share this mission with you and have you as a member of my mission support team.
