Where I serve

For my third year as a missionary, I am serving as the Team Director at Wayne State College in Nebraska! I'm excited to experience the Midwest after having the blessing of serving at University of Colorado in Boulder for the past two years! I would love to share with you in my journey of faith and how Jesus has led me through it all!

My Story

It was not until I met FOCUS missionaries on my campus as an undergrad at Washington State University (Go Cougs!) that I really lived out my faith. During college, I pursued excellence in academics and that became my ideal. FOCUS came to campus my senior year and through their friendship, and the willingness to share their relationship with God to me, I was able to know Jesus in a way that I had never known before. Because of this relationship, I was able to listen to what God was asking of me, than my own plans, to become a missionary! It has been a joy to witness how Jesus has transformed so many lives including my own on college campuses! He has shown me the Way, the Truth and the Life and I cannot wait to share that with students on the campuses that I will be serving!

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. 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 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.
