Where we serve

I am thrilled to serve at a new campus, the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, for my third year as a missionary, now as a Team Director. The students here are hungry for the gospel, and I want to present it to as many of them as possible! The Lord has done so much in my life in FOCUS, and I look forward to what He will do this year in these students lives. I'd love to share my story with you!

Our Story

Despite growing up Catholic, I never really knew Christ intimately for some time into college. My career in higher education was longer than most, and there were many ups and downs along the way, but God's grace continually worked in me until I truly opened myself up to Him. With the help of a faithful and supportive community in San Diego, our Lord lit a fire in me for love of Him, and He fuels that fire in me daily to share Him with others. Now, I am committed to serving Him through college students who are hungry to know Him as I was. 

These are some scripture verses that I strive to live by:

"Lord, I am not worthy to have you enter under my roof; only say the word and my servant will be healed." – Mt 8:8

"If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me." – Lk 9:23

"In the world you will have trouble, but take courage, I have conquered the world." – Jn 16:33

Your Impact

After I answered the call to join FOCUS, I committed to raising full spiritual and financial support from my mission partners. Their role is essential to the mission, and their support is a great blessing to me and those I serve. If you would like to join my team, please let me know how I may best reach out to you to schedule a meeting! I would love to share this mission with you.

"Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit." – Mt 28:19
