Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at the University of Missouri! I'll be hanging around the Newman center and trying to find the University's best reading spots so I can encounter as many students as God places in front of me. Jesus has brought so much joy into my life, and I can't wait to go out and bring that joy to all the students at Mizzou! Go Tigers!

My Story

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 my campus and know that God will send many more amazing souls my way.

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!
