Where I serve

God has called me to serve my first year on staff at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, Louisiana! I trust that the Lord desires good things for me, all the students on this campus, and each person I encounter along the way!

My Story

As a missionary, one of my greatest desires is to lead others into a living relationship with Jesus Christ by his grace. College can be a tough transition for many people, as it was for me. However, my life has been transformed by Jesus through people who have loved me well, lived as witnesses of Christ, and who continue to invite me to know Him more and more every day. My life is now full of purpose and hope. I want nothing more than to bring light and 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 where we are at by becoming human and spending most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus’ own example to reach the world in the same way. I've been constantly amazed by the different souls I've already encountered along the journey.

Above is a picture of my team who will all serve at Nicholls State University! From left to right is Felix Read, Peter Manfre, Lauren Hamilton, me, and Amber Manfre. They are all awesome, and I am so excited to spend the next year with them!

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 are journeying with me as I prepare to 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.
