Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at Temple University. I hope to share my testimony and offer genuine friendship to lead students to the most beautiful friendship of all, which is fullness in Christ. 

My Story

A tragedy occurred in my life a short time before I began college. I thrived academically and ignored all the ways I had fallen spiritually. This tragedy made me feel outside of God's love. I received innumerable graces on the path back to Christ. I realized that all encounters in life, no matter how subtle, have the potential to reveal the love of the Lord in our every day lives. I also realize that every single soul on campus is of such high value that it is a duty to help them in any way I can. This invokes the duty to lead them to Christ, who provides all things. It was through fellowship, conversation and authentic friendships that God offered me His gentle hand and pulled me out of the darkness so prevalent on campus. 

Your Impact
