Where I serve

FOCUS is sending me this year to the University of Memphis!  As I go into my third year on campus, I’m excited for my new role as Team Director to be leading three other missionaries as we take on Tennessee.  

Meet the team! (from left to right) David Purcell, Bryan Roberts, myself, and Kaitlyn Pham.

My Story

When I arrived my freshmen year of college at Northwest Missouri State University, I was immediately faced with the choice to live a life of selfish desires. I thought I was living the college dream of partying all night, managing good grades, and finding the “it” crowd through Greek Life.  Looking back now I can clearly see the emptiness that filled my life and the void I was trying to fill.

While at a Sunday Mass my junior year, I met the FOCUS missionaries that had just arrived on campus.  Through their love, prayers, and much patience, I found myself joining them and 10,000 other college students at a conference over Christmas break called SEEK.  There I met Jesus face-to-face in the Eucharist during adoration, and heard so clearly His love for me.  After that, I knew everything in my life had to change in order to follow Christ.

Your Impact

Join me in the search for souls for Jesus Christ.  My life was forever changed because of Jesus and His followers in FOCUS.  Your support and prayers will add to this mission greatly and make it possible to find these lost souls during their search for truth in this critical time of their lives.  I would be honored to share in this mission with you.  Thank you so much for all of your support, you are a pivotal piece in God’s kingdom!

"Some give by going, others go by giving.  Without both, there is no mission."

Teach Others to Share Christ

We teach students how to share the gospel, who in turn teach other students how to pass it on …
