Where I serve

I will be serving at Northern Michigan University, situated on the shores of Lake Superior in Michigan's gorgeous Upper Peninsula. NMU is located in Marquette, Michigan which is surrounded by all kinds of fun "outdoorsy" things to do—you can catch me taking students on hikes, going snowboarding, climbing some rock walls (or ice walls), or camping in the serene Northwoods; all while leading them closer to Jesus Christ.

Every soul that I am able to reach is made possible by my mission partners, so I thank you in advance for your prayers and financial support.
