Where I serve

I serve as a missionary at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, GA.

My Story

While I was a student at Texas A&M University, my life was transformed through the formation I received at St. Mary's Catholic Center and all of the men and women involved with FOCUS. 

Entering college, I thought my worth was found in the sum of all of my earthly accomplishments; however, the formation I received helped me understand my true identity as a son of the Father. God has given all of us the beautiful gift of life, and how we choose to live our life is our gift back to Him. Rather than waking up each day with the mentality of how I can be better than others, FOCUS has helped me receive the mentality to "seek first the kingdom of God", and make Him known in all aspects of my life by exercising chastity, sobriety, and excellence. 

Matthew 6:33

Your Impact

I said "yes" to being a FOCUS missionary because I believe that transforming the young men and women of our world is vital towards creating a culture that will become more centered on Christ. College is a place where one typically develops the morals and beliefs that will guide them throughout their lives, and I believe if more college students turn their lives to our Lord, our world will see more corporate leaders, politicians, doctors, and families that hold true to the teachings of the Church by knowing Christ and making Him known.
