Where I serve

Last year (2016-17) I had the pleasure of serving at Washington State University in Pullman, WA. What a year! The friendships I made there I hope to keep for life! This year, though, I am excited to serve at Idaho State University in Pocatello, ID.

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ and His Church. This desire is the result of my own story of coming to know Jesus through personal relationships with people who love him. I can't begin to describe the amazing things Jesus has done for me, from giving me a faithful Protestant family and church growing up where my relationship with Him was born, on to showing me his life-giving presence in the Catholic Mass, to this never ending journey of growing closer to Him and the Father through the Holy Spirit. My life has been transformed by him 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. Those few invested deeply in a few more and taught them to do the same. Across all centuries on every continent, this unbroken line of lives changed continues to grow. I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world.

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.
