Where I serve


I am honored and blessed that the Lord has called me to serve in Dublin, Ireland. This campus is full of lively, enthusiastic, bright, and unique students, each searching for a specific way they can impact the world around them. This year God has been revealing to me how much He desires to impact their world through an encounter of a deep and personal relationship with Him. His great desire to awaken the spiritual riches dwelling within the student's souls is the fire which fuels my daily encounter with the students. He allows this to be seen and experienced through: daily Sacraments, fellowship, community outreach and service, ministry support, LOTS of Coffee, bible studies, coaching rugby, singing in the choir, city excursions, and one-on-one time with the students!

My Story

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. As a missionary I too strive to humbly invest in those He is calling me to grow in relationship with. I've been constantly amazed by the different souls I've encountered on campus. In this call, God has shown me how infinitely good, patient, and faithful He is  to us! This journey of discovery of  how He has called me to encounter Him in a new way daily through this mission has been such a gift to my life. I have been incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to devote my life to loving and serving Him and His Kingdom. 

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. This mission of radical encounter with Jesus cannot be accomplished on my own. I prayerfully wish to partner in this mission with individuals who are willing to support me both spiritually and financially. This support will allow me to  serve at Wright State and have the ability to invest in students through 1-on-1 mentorship, in bible studies, and in sharing life with them. 

I've been incredibly 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. Please feel free to contact me at anytime with any question or prayer intentions you may have.
