Where I serve

I am serving as a missionary at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. 

My Story

I experienced a radical transformation my sophomore year at the University of Connecticut. I had fallen away from my faith and was feeling unfulfilled and lacking purpose when I met a FOCUS missionary named Shannon. She had a deep faith and a contagious joy that stood out to me, and so I said yes when she invited me to her Bible study. In that Bible study, I came to know the truth of the gospel: that we are created for relationship with God, that we broke that relationship with Him, and that out of His abundant love and perfect mercy, Jesus wants to save us from our sin and restore our relationship with the Father. This changed my life!! My hope is to do the same thing for students on campus that Shannon did for me. I want to help show them how it is possible - and worth more than anything - to encounter Christ and experience His transforming love!

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. I've been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus. If you are interested in supporting 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! I would not be able to serve as a missionary on campus without a monthly support team, and so I am very grateful for your help through prayer and monthly financial gifts.
