Where I serve

This is my second year as a FOCUS missionary serving at Ball State University in Indiana!

My Story

My story with becoming a missionary begins with my encounter with Christ and reconversion back to the Church. Before this encounter I lived a empty life, seeking fulfillment in material and earthly things. Nothing was ever good enough, I needed the latest and greatest gadget or gizmo all the time and I spent hours during the day searching for these things. It wasn't until my good friend invited me to come to mass with him. Later that semester I went to confession for the first time in 4 years and probably the first time I truly confessed all that I was sorry for. A couple months later through God's grace I went on a retreat. During this retreat I encountered God's love in a very profound and real way. The Lord had chosen to touch my heart with His love. 

Since my encounter with God I had a deep desire to know Him and be in relationship with Him. I began to pray and receive the Sacraments, and through pray and Sacraments I've come to know His desire to also be in relationship with me! When Christ entered into my life I knew that I was called to something great. I knew God had called me to spread the Gospel in direct way. I knew God was calling me to become as missionary for His Church and to spread the Gospel throughout the world! This inspired me to join FOCUS, to go out on college campuses and fulfill the great commission! 

"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.”                                                                                  -Matthew 28:19-20

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.

Your Impact

PRAYERS! This mission first and foremost needs prayers, without prayers the mission is nothing. Please pray for the students I will encounter on Ball State's campus. MISSION SUPPORT! When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. Without financial support there is no way to sustain the mission, without financial support, there is no mission to pray for. 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.
