Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at Michigan Technological University. This will be my first semester as a FOCUS missionary, and my first semester on the Upper Peninsula! One of my great passions is the outdoors, so you can find me hiking, fishing, or relaxing in my hammock when I'm not at the Newman Center. I also love any type of sports, so much of my ministry will be aimed at reaching college athletes. If you'd like to hear more about my story come find me. I'd love to share it.

My Story

I'm from a small farming town in central Minnesota. Growing up on a dairy farm, the sixth of eight children, I learned the value of working with the people around me pretty quickly. As a missionary, my greatest desire is to continue working with students as we run towards Christ. Jesus has transformed my life in countless ways, 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. Following Christ's lead, I hope to meet and walk with students daily as we all strive to follow God's call in our lives.

Your Impact

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. 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.
