Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students. You'll typically find me hanging out at the university cafe, the Newman Center, or high-fiving people around campus. I have a pretty cool story about how Jesus has changed my life -- I think you should hear it sometime! Come find me and I'd love to share it with you. :)

My Story

My life was radically transformed by Christ during my own time in college. I had been wrestling with my sense of identity for a few years by the time I left for school and I felt like my life was missing a sense of purpose and fulfillment. This sense of lack left me feeling rather lost about who I was and who I wanted to be and I wasn't sure what to do about it. I ended up getting involved with a Christian organization on campus which lead me to develop a personal relationship with God that totally changed my life. God met me in my feelings of listlessness and showed me how vibrant a life I could have in Him and my life is so much better in so many ways because of it. 

Looking back on that time, it strikes me how easily I could have not had the spiritual experiences that I did, and if it wasn't for a single invitation from a friend, I might have never met God and my life would look totally different. There are so many students on college campuses today who never get the kind of opportunity to encounter God that I did. As a missionary, my desire is to give as many students as possible that opportunity, to give them an invitation to experience the life-changing impact of the Gospel and to see for themselves what a rich and abundant life God offers them.

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.
