Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students. You'll typically find me hanging out at the Catholic Center, in the library, or meeting people around campus. 

My Story

As a student I saw the need for deeper encounters and a great need to be satisfied by Him alone. I was able to encounter and be encountered which gave me the desire to allow this inner transformation to also transform others. I know the power that sharing life with students can do in someones life and  witnessing that this past 4 years I want to continue that. Students thirst for Him and I want to be able to bring them to Him like so many people did with me. I know that a good college experience is possible, one where you feel free and satisfied. However, not everyone had this experience and I know this could change the lives of so many college students.

Above are some of the girls that attend Spanish bible studies and that I get to walk with. 

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus 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've been constantly amazed by the different souls I've encountered on campus as a student and how that impacted my life and the life of others. 

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.
