Where I serve
After an incredible year of growth filled with challenges and failures, successes and blessings, God has called me to return to the University of California-Los Angeles for the 2017-2018 Academic Year! I am overjoyed and eager to discover how God desires to transform my life in the next year and to witness the lives God will transform over the next year!
I've been Catholic my whole life but it wasn't until college that I was able to encounter Christ and recognize how He's been pursuing me my whole life. Witnessing Christ alive and thriving through the lives' of the FOCUS missionaries at CU-Boulder opened my eyes to the kind of life I knew I was made for, a life in pursuit of holiness and Him. It was in their witness to Christ and their outpouring of love for me that inspired me to commit myself to God. I have since overcome countless weaknesses, and continue to grow in virtue and in my relationship with Him every day. I have also answered the call to serve God and others like me by joining FOCUS as a testament to my love for Him who first loved me.
As UCLA enters its third year with FOCUS, I am blessed to continue to lay more groundwork for the many years to come. This is such an exciting opportunity to help build a community centered in Christ and a culture of authentic masculinity. Last year saw great success in this regard and God rewarded my efforts with great friendships.
More importantly, the investments I am able to make in the lives of the students are truly the heart of my mission. Like the men and women before me, I am able to model a life in Christ and then invite them into that.
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. Now, I'd be honored to be able to share this mission with you. I hope you'll join me as I work to revolutionize the college campus and everywhere beyond.
