Where I serve

This is now my 5th year with FOCUS!  After 4 years of serving as an on-campus missionary at Northwestern State University and the University of Memphis, God has called me on to other adventure with the FOCUS Alumni Mobilization Team.  This team serves about 30,000 former missionaries and students as they enter their next phase of life.  FOCUS has always wanted to build up life long Catholic missionary disciples, and that's exactly what this team gets to do!  We’re visiting them, listening to what’s working well, and connecting them with each other to be on mission together. 

My Story

When I arrived my freshmen year of college at Northwest Missouri State University, I was immediately faced with new found "freedom," and the hard decisions of who I wanted to be. 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 ways I was searching for something more 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."
