Where I serve

This year I am serving at Kansas State University as a campus missionary! I served as a first year missionary at my own campus at Texas A&M University for the 2017-2018 school year. I am a second year missionary but this is my first year being sent to a new campus! I am so excited to be able to continue living the Great Commission, inviting students into relationship with Jesus and encouraging them to live lives of chastity, sobriety, and excellence in Manhattan, KS. Go Cats!

My Story

As a student at Texas A&M my was completely transformed by Jesus Christ. When I first got to college, I had no idea who I was or what I was made for. This began to change when I met a FOCUS missionary on campus named John. John invited me into a bible study during my first semester of college that continued through the entire year. Through him, I learned for the first time that I was made for a relationship with Christ and this would be the one thing to fulfill me and give meaning to my life. John continued to invest in me throughout the year, bringing me to FOCUS' national conference called SEEK, to retreats, and to Kingston, Jamaica for a mission trip. He taught me what it means to live as a disciple of Jesus. He taught me how to live like the earliest apostles did! It was his yes to mission that paved the way for me to meet the real, living Jesus. There are so many college students like me out there. They are made for relationship with God. The sad news is this: no one will tell them! As Mother Teresa says, the greatest poverty in the world is not knowing Jesus... How could I not become a FOCUS missionary myself?

I started to feel the call to be a campus missionary early on in my college career and am incredibly grateful that I had the opportunity to serve as a campus intern during my senior year of college. Now, I get to continue with this amazing organization in Kansas! College students especially are starving for something (or someone) to give their lives to. I look forward to encountering these people in a deep way and inviting them into relationship with Christ. His love and mercy have the power to change the world and getting to be a part of His mission is life's greatest adventure.

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of monthly mission partners to help me through this mission. I have been given an incredible opportunity to partner with many men, women, and families who have decided to take this journey with me as I serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know how I can reach you and we can set up an appointment or phone call. It would be an honor to share this mission with you.
