My Story

As a college student, I was "living the dream". I was in a fraternity, maintaining good grades, and experiencing what I thought would be the best four years of my life. I had everything I could ever ask for, but I didn't know Jesus. My senior year a FOCUS missionary invited me deeper into my faith and because of that invitation and continued friendship my life was radically change by the love of the Father. 

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all people to Christ, especially college students. 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 people I've been able to encounter on campus.

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 to help me through this mission. I've been blessed with 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 grateful to share this mission with you.
