Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students. You'll typically find me hanging out at the University Catholic Center, a taco shop, or a bookstore. Come find me sometime if you want to pray, eat, or hangout! 

My Story

When I went to college, I was a swimmer at the University of Alabama. It was during these four years that I was introduced to the person of Jesus Christ. Not only has my life been radically transformed  but also my family, friends, and future will never be the same because one person was willing to share the Gospel with me. I now have an ardent desire to serve at the University of Texas to work with student athletes. My desire is that I can transmit Christ into an athletic culture that is plagued with pressure, depression, mental illness, and lack of purpose. 

The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me; He has sent me to bring good news to the afflicted, to bind up the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, release to the prisoners, To announce a year of favor from the LORD and a day of vindication by our God; To comfort all who mourn (Isaiah 61 : 1-2)

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.
