Support Andrew

Where we serve

Andrew is entering his 3rd year as Team Director at Virginia Tech in the 2018-2019 school year, while Carmen is resuming her role as an affiliate (part-time) missionary in the midst of her primary role as mother to their two children.

Andrew began serving as a missionary at Virginia Tech in the Fall of 2013. He and Carmen became engaged at the end of 2013, and she came to serve at VT in the Fall of 2014, during which they became married. They became a family of 3 in 2015 with the birth of their son, Joseph, and most recently, they were blessed with the birth of their second son, Xavier. 

Our Story

Carmen and Andrew both experienced the healing love of Jesus Christ through the campus ministry during their college years at George Mason University. Understanding the importance of a personal prayer life with Jesus, the centrality of the sacraments, and having opportunities to attend retreats, conferences, and be part of a community in which they could build deep friendships placed on their hearts a desire to bring others to know Christ and His Church as well. By investing the lives of college students as they were invested in, particularly through small groups and deep friendships in which discussions about the most important things in life can take place, they are playing their part in how the Lord has called them to "Make disciples of all nations" (Matthew 28).
