Where I serve

"Yes." That was my response to God's call to become a FOCUS missionary two  years ago.

 I was placed at the United States Naval Academy, and the new evangelization came to life for me there. I am excited to say that God is calling me to continue on for another year as a FOCUS missionary, but elsewhere. In the missionary spirit, I will leave behind a place I have become quite familiar with and venture into the unknown, becoming the Team Director of New Jersey’s FOCUS mission, Ramapo College: A small liberal arts school that is snuggled in between the humbling Ramapo Mountains and the galvanizing bustle of New York City.

My Story

                          "If God can work through me, he can work through anyone."                                                                           - St. Francis of Assisi

  Faith is a daily decision to embody the person of Christ, and like most people, I was not always a person of faith. It wasn't until someone invited me to join them in attending a youth group in High School that I considered my Christianity and Catholicism as legitimate parts of my life. Inspired by the life of St. Francis of Assisi, I was transformed and reoriented towards my Creator, Their Son, and Their Spirit. 

  I was truly blessed that by the time I started college at Marian University of Indianapolis, my faith was on fire, and I naturally began to soar in the community through our school's Campus Ministry Department. I couldn't keep that fire to myself, and so I spread it to as many people as I could, guiding them into an authentic encounter with Jesus Christ. It was soon after that I discerned my calling to become a campus minister and ran full speed towards that goal all four years of my college career; a goal which is still have burning inside of me.
  I was accepted into graduate school, but instead of spending the next two years obtaining a master's degree in pastoral ministry, I deferred my enrollment so that I could answer my call to do post-graduate service work. While looking at different possibilities, FOCUS stood out to me, because we shared a common battleground. The immediate recognition that many if not most of the college students today are not only far away from living wholesome lives, but are actively (and ironically) walking themselves into poverty. 

Your Impact

                             "The poverty in the West is a different kind of poverty --
                          it is not only a poverty of loneliness but also of spirituality.
                            There's a hunger for love, as there is a hunger for God.”

                                                     -Mother Theresa 

  A missionary is someone who combats poverty in all of its forms. Unfortunately, there is a great deal of poverty that characterizes the student body of most  modern college campuses. As a Catholic, who was called two years ago into the missionary life, it became my decision to work through FOCUS to rage against the spiritual poverty on the college campus. I didn't know what I was getting myself into. But after working directly with dozens of college students, I am certain of this: That God desires every single soul on every single campus, that He ceases at no moment to draw near to them, and because of this He will take care in making the things we think are impossible into possibilities; if we just say "yes" to being His hands and feet.
