Where I serve

Jesus has called me to serve as a missionary at Rice University in Houston, Texas! God has called me to leave the Cajun Land, and return to serve in the best country in the world, Texas. This is the first year that FOCUS will be at Rice University and Houston as well. With this being said, I am extremely eager to meet the students and walk alongside them as they journey to experience Christ in a more intimate relationship.

My Story


For the majority of my life, I was a lukewarm Catholic. I had prayed a plethora of words during mass, was heavily involved with my church, but I did so without any love and more of an moral obligation to be a good person. During college, I encountered a missionary that laid down his life for Christ and invited me into a love story from God called the Gospel. It’s a love story that I had to share with the world

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. In order to radically invest in student’s lives at Rice University, I cannot fulfill this call to mission alone. I need your help!  By generously joining this mission, you will be accompanying me in fulfilling the great commission, winning souls for Christ, and giving hope to this world!  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.
