Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at the University of Rhode Island! Go Rams! I am so excited for my first year of mission!

My Story

As an emerging college student, I thought that personal happiness was dependent on my success in the classroom, on the sports field, and in my friendships and relationships. I desired happiness. As a competitive guy, I put 110% of my energy into making this a reality, but by the end of my second year, I was burnt out, empty, and alone.

I needed a new start, so I transferred to attend George Mason University. It was very painful leaving classmates, fraternity brothers, and friends. After speaking to two women at the Catholic Community's booth at orientation, I received an invitation to play for a coed soccer team. Within minutes of meeting my teammates at the first game, I realized that they had the joy that I had aimlessly searched for. My heart was pierced. I felt convicted to pursue something greater than myself.

The path forward in my faith was foreign to me, but through the authentic friendship of two FOCUS missionaries, I was guided through the way. In that same way, I desire to lead students to Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring this 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 on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world. I've been constantly amazed by the different souls I've encountered on campus.

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 in mission with me at URI:
