Where I serve

I serve as a missionary to college students at the University of Louisville, in Kentucky. I'm normally hanging around the Student Activity Center or grabbing lunch with people, so keep an eye out if you ever want to chat about the Catholic faith, how Christ has impacted my life, or if you just want to chat movies or play a board game : )

My Story

When I was studying at Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!), I became a part of the Catholic Campus Ministry there and was deeply impacted by how the staff members there took the time out of their busy schedules to invest in me. I soon joined a Bible Study, and later began to lead one of my own to help lead younger men to Christ while I was still a student. I was frequenting Daily Mass and had a changed perspective from what I had thought coming into college: instead of thinking I knew what was the best way for me to live my life, I realized that the right thing to do is to ask God how I should be living my life. So during my senior year, as I looked towards graduation, I was asking God what He wanted me to do. It turns out He wanted me to become a missionary with FOCUS : )

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.
