Where I serve

God is calling me to serve as a team director at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst during my 4th year with FOCUS. I will be living in Amherst, in an effort to make myself radically available to the students at U Mass.

My Story

I am blessed with parents who modeled to my brother and I what it meant to live a life centered on God. I can remember praying with my dad every night before bed as a young child, and hearing him pray that I might grow up to love and serve God. This always stuck with me and helped to shape my desires. When I went to college I joined the Fellowship of Catholic University Students as a student leader. There was a missionary on campus named TJ who invested a lot of time in me, helping me to know and love Jesus. Just as TJ invested a lot of time and effort in guiding me to an intimate relationship with Jesus, I  desire to help students at U Mass know and love Jesus as their personal Lord and savior. In this way, I hope to serve God and His Church. 

While on Earth, Jesus left behind everything He knew to pursue friendships with His people. He wanted to show them that they were made for more than temporary passions or selfish gain. Out of love for Him and His Church, I seek to follow Jesus' example. To do so, I have joined FOCUS as a full-time missionary, leaving everything behind to pursue friendships with the students of U Mass. Through FOCUS, I will lead Bible Studies, carry out one-on-one mentorship, and lead mission trips abroad. In addition to that, I will be a key leader in the coordination of this year's national leadership summit.  It is my hope that my friendship with these students will reveal the love of God and the Hope of Salvation. I cannot wait to share my life with the students of U Mass! I hope to present them with a radical invitation to move closer to His heart.

Your Impact

Although my heart is completely behind this mission, I cannot complete it by myself. As a missionary with FOCUS I rely fully on the grace of God, manifested through the generosity of others, to support myself financially. I'd be honored to share this mission with you. Although you cannot physically join me, I invite you to go on mission with me in any capacity that you can. Please feel free to contact me to learn about how you can join me in changing the tide of our culture.
