Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students as a 3rd-year missionary at New York University! Say yes to Jesus and he will take you on an adventure of a lifetime that he's always had in mind for you. I can't wait to see what He has in store for our Church there this year. And while I'm on mission here, he has a mission for your life. To be a part of that, all God needs is your fiat, your yes!


My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Jesus. In the middle of my college career, my closest friend was diagnosed with cancer and I found myself crying to God, "Are you out there? I need help". After encountering faithful Christians my age, I came to know who Jesus really is and how he wants nothing less than my entire heart. He wants to take care of us, heal our wounds, and fill us with his love so that we can sacrificially serve others. Now, I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel!

Some give by going, others go by giving. Without both, there are no missions.

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of 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 being on my support team, 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!
