Hey! My name's Paul. I'm a FOCUS missionary.

Where I serve

God calls each of us to follow his plan for our lives, and he has called me to serve the Midshipmen at the United States Naval Academy. You'll typically find me hanging out at the Nimitz Library coffee shop, answering emails or enjoying a meal at Drydock, or explaining the truths of our faith through clever math analogies. After all, God doesn't judge us by the integral of our past; he looks at the derivative of our hearts! I have a great 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

Growing up Catholic, my faith was always part of my life. I faithfully attended youth groups and never questioned my faith. I always remember believing that God loved me personally and had a plan for my life, but things got a bit fuzzy when I started wondering how these plans would translate into reality. As an Engineering student, I decided that I could just design plans for my life, and then make sure God was on board. As it turns out, God has plans for us that are far greater than we could ever imagine, and he loved me enough to invite me into something greater: His mission for souls.

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. I've been constantly amazed by the different souls I've encountered on campus.

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!
