Hey! My name's David. I'm a FOCUS Missionary.

Where I serve

             I am currently serving in Birmingham, AL as a Regional Director in the South Area.  I served for four years at the University of Kentucky and then The University of Maryland before moving into my current role!  In this role I work with 7 teams of missionaries on 7 campuses as I coach them from my own experience, help them grow in holiness, and support and encourage them during the ups and downs of mission on campus.  I also serve with my wife, Frankie, as we work to create a family life that shares the Gospel to our community (she works as a nurse) and that enables the missionaries I work with to be successful!

My Story

       As a missionary, I have had amazing opportunities to lead students into relationship with Jesus Christ. My life has been transformed by the Lord and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world.  I am convinced that by reaching college students who will become the leaders of the future, we have a unique opportunity to tilt the culture in favor of Christ Jesus.  I've been constantly amazed by the different souls I've encountered on campus and the impact they will have on the Church and the world in years to come!

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!

Know, Love and Serve God

We encounter God in an intimate relationship through daily prayer, the sacraments and the Scriptures.
