Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students. You'll typically find me hanging out at the university cafe, the Newman Center, or hanging out by the quad on campus. I have a pretty cool story about how Jesus has transformed my heart and called me serve on mission. I would love to share it with you! 

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. 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. I encountered Him in college when a missionary challenged me to start a daily prayer life. As I slowly developed my relationship with Christ I began to recognize my love to serve Him. During my senior year I felt God calling me to be His hands and feet and continue to serve Him full time on a college campus. 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. I've been constantly amazed by the different souls I've encountered on campus.

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 are journeying 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.
