Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at Benedictine College in Atchison, KS. Benedictine College is a beautiful campus and I am so blessed to be able to serve here. The school has so many wonderful traditions and we also have the Benedictine Monks praying for and supporting all the students and staff on campus. As true Benedictines say, Ravens will soar! 

My Story

I grew up in small town, Albion, NE and attended the University of South Dakota. It was in college at USD that I came to know a FOCUS missionary. This missionary showed me how to pray, read scripture, and know the Lord on a personal level. She challenged me to pray daily, attend daily mass, and go to confession at least once a month. Through each of these encounters with the Lord I developed a personal loving relationship with him. It was through my relationship with Jesus that I felt the call to fulfill the Great Commission in Matthew 28: 18-20. "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 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, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and behold, I am with you always, to the close of the age." In order to spread Jesus Christ to the world and fulfill this call, I became a FOCUS missionary. By being a FOCUS missionary, I am able to reach out to college students during a time when many turn away from their faith. I am able to meet them on their level, become a loving friend, and share the Gospel message. Jesus has changed my life in a radical way, and I desire for everyone to encounter Jesus in the same way. 

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the Lord for mission partners who come on mission with me by supporting me spiritually and financially. 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 contact me by phone 402.741.0844 or email [email protected] I would be honored to schedule an appointment with you to share more about FOCUS's mission and how you can support the mission too! Let me know of the best way to reach you and I look forward to visiting with you. May God Bless you all!
