Where I serve

God has called my wife, Elizabeth and I, to serve at the University of Dallas in Irving, TX! I will be serving students and student-athletes there as a Varsity Catholic Missionary. We are excited for this next chapter and all that Jesus has in-store for these students! This is all in hopes that they may come to know the love that Christ has in store for them through relationships with Him and His kingdom here on earth!

My Story

As missionaries, our greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. Our life has been transformed by Jesus and we 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. We look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world. We've been constantly amazed by the different souls we've encountered on campus.

Your Impact

When we answered the call to join FOCUS, we made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help us through this mission. We've been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with us as we serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with us, please let us know of the best way to reach you and we will schedule an appointment. We'd be honored to share this mission with you, reach out to me at [email protected] or call me at (915)603-6403
