Where I serve

            I have been called to serve college students with the Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS). FOCUS's mission is to reach out to college students and invite them into a continuing relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church. Not only do we invite students into a relationship with Christ, but we teach them how to invite others into that same relationship!

      I currently serve at Eastern Washington University in Cheney, WA.  EWU has a total of 13,000 undergraduate students as well as a satellite campus in Spokane, WA.  As a missionary on this campus, our team serves out of the Catholic Newman Center! We have the privilege of working with over 100 students weekly through bible studies and discipleship.  It has been amazing to be a missionary at EWU and I am looking forward to returning for the 2017-2018 academic year. 

My Story

My story begins within the GREAT state of North Dakota!  I pride myself on being from a state that has more cows than human beings, no trees, farmland as far as the eye can see, and winters that would cause most polar bears to migrate. If none of these things inspire you to come visit, please come to encounter the quality people!

My Catholic faith was not the center of my life until I was a freshman in college. I had been baptized and confirmed in the Church, but never sought the opportunity to embrace the gift of my Catholic faith. For a majority of my life, I was devoted to attaining happiness through means that society proclaimed as the "only way" to be truly happy. Through this pursuit, I found myself empty and searching for something more. I remember asking myself the question, "Is this all that life has to offer? If so, what is the point of existing?"

It was at this crucial life dilemma of question and doubt that a FOCUS missionary stepped into my life. She was radiantly joyful and I couldn't figure out why! Through an authentic friendship with this missionary, I ended up attending a bible study and encountered Jesus Christ for the first time. I then understood where her joy came from!

Since that pivotal encounter, I have not looked back. I have been continually diving deeper into the beauty of a life lived with and for Christ. This relationship with Christ has propelled me into answering the call to serve as a FOCUS missionary. Each soul deserves happiness and it can only be found within an authentic relationship with their Creator. I am beyond excited and grateful to be called to this mission.


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.
