Where I serve

I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to help bring college students to know Jesus personally through bible studies, mentorship, sharing the Gospel, and fostering intentional friendships. Jesus is taking big leaps within the hearts of His people and I am incredibly humbled at the opportunity to be just one small part of it.

My Story

“I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.” Galatians 2:20 

 Growing up, I was incredibly blessed to be raised with a very strong foundation in my Catholic faith. This continued until I began my college career at the University of North Texas where in my first two years of school I was lost and tempted to fall into the broken and unfulfilling lifestyles that entrap our college campuses. Up until that point, I had believed in Jesus strictly on an intellectual level but had never truly sought out to experience His unfailing love within my heart. As I began asking questions and seeking answers about Jesus and His church, my path intersected with the FOCUS missionaries at UNT. 

 It was a few months later at a FOCUS conference where I truly experienced, first hand, the profound love that Christ pours out over our hearts. It was there that I began to fully understand the level of truth and beauty found within the Church and how Jesus was yearning to love me on a deep and personal level. It was also there that Jesus sparked a fire within me that desired to share this joy of Christ with as many people as I possibly could.

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.
