My Story

Saint Augustine says "Our heart is restless O Lord, until it rests in You.”  This is something I experienced myself when God came into my life in college.  I was lost, wandering through life and school in an unfulfilled culture, and He found me.  I encountered His authentic love and joy in a way I had never known was possible, and nothing has been the same since.  It happened through a FOCUS Missionary named Brian.  Brian lived for more than just the world, he lived for the saving message of the gospel, and his 'yes' to mission changed my life forever.  Brian invited me to run after the Lord together, and to drop my nets and follow Jesus wherever He lead us.

Around this time, I also heard God telling me to give my 'yes' to a life of radical mission as well, and knew He wanted me to share His Good News with other college students as a full-time missionary.  I gave God that 'yes' and continue to be blown away by the incredible impact He is making in my life and the lives of others.

Working with FOCUS gives me the chance to serve college students in a deep and profound way.  Sharing Christ with them, and equipping them to share Him with others.   God calls us to set the world aflame for Him, and it's a mission that will require many laborers!  It's a privilege to be able to serve full time on a campus and share this Good News with college students, watching their lives get transformed is like no other experience!

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 throughout the year. 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.  It happens because of YOU!
