Where I serve

This year, the Lord has called me to serve my second year at Minnesota State University in Mankato, Minnesota. Horns up, Mavericks! 

You can typically find me encountering students at a local Mankato Coffee House, in the Student Union, or in the Performing Arts Building. Please pray for me and my teammates Michael, Ashley, Hunter, Emma and Andrew!

My Story

  As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus 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. From that deep investment, he was able to reach the world! 

My greatest desire is that by deeply investing in a few here at Minnesota State University, eventually all students here will have heard the Gospel message... ultimately that Jesus is madly in love with them.

  “What really matters in life is that we are loved by Christ and that we love Him in return. In comparison to the love of Jesus, everything else is secondary. And, without the love of Jesus, everything is useless.”  - Saint John Paul ll

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.
