Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students on the campus of Colorado School of Mines this year.  It is such a blessing to be at Mines because I spent my years of undergraduate studies here!  When I am not in class you will find me at the Periodic Table meeting new students, on the Commons playing games will the coolest people ever, or enjoying a fun game night at the fellowship house! I am so blessed that God has lead me to where I am today in serving Him as a missionary for college students.  I would love to share more with you!

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all 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. Growing up and throughout high school, I was often put into leadership roles with high expectations.  While I enjoyed those roles, it created in me the desire to be perfect.  I developed such an unhealthy picture of who I was as a person.  I thought unless I lived up to other's expectations, I would never be good enough.  I was failing to be the perfect guy. That is when I met my best friend, Joe.  A young man like myself who was a FOCUS missionary on my campus.  Through the friendship of this man, for the first time in my life I felt like I no longer had to pretend who I was and put on this front of being the perfect guy.  Of course I grew up with a strong faith background, and I am so grateful for that experience from my parents.  But my best friend showed me that God's expectations are the ONLY ones that matter.  The funny thing is, that God's only expectation was that I accept His infinite love into my heart.  All other things come after that.  This is the truth that I want all students to live in.  We are all infinitely loved by the Father. 

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. It is crucial that I make myself fully available to students and deeply invest in their lives.  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.
