Where we serve

We are so glad to be serving at East Carolina University for our second year on mission. We have a great heart for opening our home to the students at ECU so as to share the love of Christ and the joy of family with them! Please pray for us as we continue in this ministry!

Our Story

When we met in college, we were both cradle Catholics lacking true relationship with Jesus Christ. We were very caught up in our worldly pursuits in the academic, athletic, and social realms of university life. Then, through the witness and love of a young Christ-centered family, we were inspired to pursue a life lived entirely for His glory. With the loving guidance of our Mother and the saints and lots of sacramental grace, we each chose to make Jesus Christ the center of our lives and kept Him at the center as we entered into our vocation of marriage.

Luke had been pursuing a career in mining in Denver, CO for two years after college when we received the call to become missionaries. In the spring of 2021, we said 'yes'-- Luke quit his job and moved our family across the country to be on full-time mission.

As missionaries, our greatest desire is to show young people that joy is found not in chasing the empty promises of the world, but in opening one's heart to Him who is Love itself!
