Where I serve

I am serving as the team director at The University of Utah. It has truly been a blessing to work with students and witness them become fully alive. There have been amazing things happening on the college campus and I hope to share them with you! 

My Story

Upon entering college, I never saw faith as being important, so I decided to abandon anything to do with the Church. I stopped attending Mass and the sacraments and chose instead to seek fulfillment in what the world says will make us happy. For the better part of two years I lived for nothing but myself. I desired authentic love and friendship but searched for it in all the wrong places. That is until I encountered a group of joyful Christians and decided to explore the Catholic faith on a deeper level and saw that it provided so many answers to the biggest questions I had. I was able to be formed not just spiritually but intellectually as well. Christ became a person who loved me and not just a historic figure who existed 2000 years ago. I immediately experienced a peace I had never felt before and knew the love I had been searching for all this time had also been searching for me at my worst.

For the past several years I have been working with college students to help them see there is so much more to life than school, work, careers, etc. There are friendships to be made, great conversations to be had, and the never ending adventure of pursuing something greater than yourself. 

It has been a wonderful time with FOCUS thus far and I am so excited to begin my fifth as a team director. There a no joys in life quite like witnessing a young man or woman encounter Jesus Christ and learning to live selfless, charitable, and faith centered lives. Facilitating these encounters and helping young people grow in virtue are why I am a missionary. The college campus has such potential to be a bright light in the darkness of today's world. We must just respond to the call. 

Your Impact

The college campus is a place where young people will be formed and make decisions that will guide the rest of their life. In order for us to be radically available for these men and women we as FOCUS missionaries have the opportunity to fundraise 100% of our salary. This is a very unique opportunity to have many other individuals other than myself participating in this work. The most fulfilling investment in the world with the "return" being that of transforming the life of an individual for all eternity. Through monthly gifts from individuals like yourself we can change the world and the culture of the college campus. No one can do this work alone and I invite you to join me on campus at the University of Utah through your prayers and financial support.
