Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students. I have been at Wayne State College (2 years), Slippery Rock University, Lindenwood University, and now the University of Southampton!  I have been invited to serve in England at the University of Southampton!

My Story

  Hello friends and family! God has won me over with with his love. When I transferred to Southeast Missouri State University I started to find out who I am and the reality about having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ the Son of God. My sophomore year I met a FOCUS missionary on campus that showed me how to pray and form a relationship with Jesus Christ.

I slowly, but surely started to change my entire life for Christ. I found friends on the campus of Southeast Missouri State University that began to build me up. The more and more I hung around the friends that built me up I fell more in love with Christ through fellowship, love, and prayer.

I was convicted in Christ's love for me so much that I wanted to become a FOCUS missionary. Therefore, I could be sent to a college campus and meet people where they are at with God's love and see the Lord's work and create new hearts and minds within the students. I applied and was hired to be a FOCUS missionary on October 6th, 2014. God's will has sent me on mission to Wayne State College, Slippery Rock University, Lindenwood University and now Southampton!  This will be the third year FOCUS has missionaries at this campus!  
I am filled with joy at the invitation to serve at the University of Southampton! God's mercy is abundant!

I desire for all of you to experience the love of God that I have and to share that with others. I invite you to participate in the everlasting love and mercy of our Lord by supporting me with prayers, donations, fellowship, and above all loving friendships.  

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 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.
