Where I serve

I'm excited to return to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga to serve my second year as a missionary!

My Story

My junior year of high school, I had a profound encounter with Jesus’ love and mercy. He showed me that he was with me in all of my weakness and brokenness, that he loved me, and that he wanted me to trust in Him. This encounter transformed the way I lived my life, and I came to college yearning to know him and love him more. 

Seeking to grow in my relationship with Him lead me to a FOCUS bible study, and from there my faith life was forever changed. The missionaries on my campus lived a life so deeply centered on Christ, and I wanted to live like them. Through their example, I learned how to make prayer the center of my life and grow closer to Jesus each day. Through my relationship with Him, my life with further transformed and I desired more and more to share the love that I had found with others.

 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.
