Where I serve

I am currently serving as a missionary at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, OK. You can find me on campus at the Newman Center or Student Union giving Bible studies and teaching men about the amazing relationship our Father wants with them.

My Story

I desire nothing more than to share with other college students the greatest gift I have been given, a relationship with Jesus Christ. By the end of my sophomore year of college, I found myself in a downward spiral with no end in sight. Bad choice after bad choice, I continued wearing the façade of “everything is all right”, hoping to one day believe my own lie. With nowhere left to go, I surrendered myself over in prayer to Jesus. Filled with the desire to know Christ, I returned to campus to start a new beginning. Within a few weeks of school, I found myself being led down to the Newman Center to experience my first daily Mass. Soon after, a FOCUS missionary, Mark, introduced himself to me and extended the invitation to discuss any questions I may have. Continuing to trust in Christ, I accepted the invitation, and we ended up meeting every Monday that year. Fast Forward 7 months and on March 26th I entered into the Catholic Church. Mark and I are still friends to this day, and I will be forever thankful for his reaching out to me.

Now as a campus missionary, I am hoping to invite others into the same great adventure of discovering Jesus.  My life has been transformed by Jesus 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. I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world. Mother Teresa once said, "The biggest disease today is not leprosy or tuberculosis, but rather the feeling of being unwanted". No matter what background the student is coming from, I want to meet them where they are at and be available to their needs, as Jesus and many of the saints have done before us.

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.
