Hey! My name's Joe. I'm a FOCUS missionary.

Where I serve

During my four years as a campus missionary, I was able to invite men to ask Jesus what he wanted them to do with their lives after college. Now, I work as a National Recruitment Specialist for FOCUS. I help inspire men and women from across the country to become missionaries and change our culture for Jesus Christ. When students say "yes" in this way, we are able to meet more and more students and impact their lives and the lives of those they will reach. I live in Tuscaloosa, AL with my wife Katie (as of October 22, 2016!) where she continues to serve as a campus missionary at The University of Alabama.

My Story

Having once been a college student, I know the atmosphere of a typical college scene and all it offers you. Having also felt the emptiness and disappointment that typically follow, I desire so strongly to guide students to a life of purpose and actual fulfillment! 

St. John Paul II once said, " It is Jesus that you seek when you dream of happiness; He is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you; He is the beauty to which you are so attracted; it is He who provoked you with that thirst for fullness that will not let you settle for compromise; it is He who urges you to shed the masks of a false life; it is He who reads in your heart your most genuine choices, the choices that others try to stifle." This is the quote that drives me back to help college students and all of my actions on campus.

I ardently desire to lead all students to Christ. I am proof of a life transformed by Christ amidst the confusion and empty promises of being a college student and I simply put want other students to know this peace that I know now. 

Your Impact

Another saint I greatly admire, St. Therese of Lisieux, once said "Some give by going to the missions, others go by giving. Without both, there are no missions." 

When I joined FOCUS, I also joined myself to Christ in a radical way by committing to fully fundraise my support and rely on His goodness even more. God has blessed me immensely with the most incredible Mission Partners who, quite literally, go on mission with me through their support.

I cannot do it without the generosity of people like you! If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. Contact me anytime at (303) 257-3731 or [email protected]
