Where I serve

I serve as the Team Director at Baylor University in Waco, Texas!

My Story

I am a missionary because there is a world of hurt on the college campus.  Students are filling themselves with things that will never fulfill them.  In my experience, I was chasing friendships and trying to be liked and approved by everyone.  I put a lot of emphasis on what others thought of me which led me into the party scene on campus.  It was really through the investment of my friend, Nicole, that ultimately led me into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.  The way she loved the Lord, lived a life of virtue, proclaimed the Gospel to me, and helped me to see who I was created to be, radically changed my life.  I no longer desired to grasp for love.  I wanted to be the authentic woman that I was created to be. Not a mediocre version.

To be the most authentic version of ourselves, we must be seeking to live in communion with God and saying "yes" to the gift of eternal life that Christ gives us through his passion, death, and resurrection!  It is through our relationship with him that opens our hearts to a deeper understanding of ourselves, love for neighbor, and love for God.

Heading into year 5 as a missionary, I see students searching for the same thing I was searching for- an answer to the question "Who am I?".  Many seek in the wrong places- social lives, classes, future professions, relationships.  None of which reveal their identity as a son or daughter of God the Father.   That is why I am a missionary, to awaken students to their deepest identity as a child of God and the freedom that living it out will bring them!

Your Impact

You play a vital role in this mission!  Without your spiritual and financial support, I would not be able to serve on campus.  Through your support, you and I are able to bring Jesus Christ to the students at Baylor University and to the world.  Please consider joining me on mission and helping me transform the world for Jesus Christ!
