Where I serve

This will be my second year serving at Boston University! It is so exciting to be back and I'm looking forward to seeing how God's plan for the campus will unravel this year. The students are great and so loving and I am so blessed to be at this campus. This year I am reaching out to fraternities while at the same time building up the student leaders so that they can share the love of Christ with their friends and classmates!

My Story

During a FOCUS mission trip, I came to realize just how much Jesus Christ loves us. He has a divine thirst for all of us to be in a relationship with Him. And as a missionary, I need to have that same kind of love that He has for the students that I meet. College students are constantly searching for things that will fulfill them and they often look in the wrong places. My greatest desire is to lead those students to Christ so that they can finally be fulfilled with an everlasting joy! We weren't made for comfort, we were made for greatness!! 

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.
