Where I serve

Over 20  years ago Jesus Christ invaded my heart and changed everything for me. Due to my decision then, to allow him to have total control of my life, I have spent the last 16 years dedicated to carrying the message of Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church to College Students.  The mission field has grown for my family over the past decade and this year I offer support, direction & inspiration to over 900 missionaries!  I am currently in a leadership position to ensure that all of our staff who mobilize partners for the mission are fully funded to serve effectively.  As we tell our leadership:  Fully funded missionaries are fully available for the gospel!

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. Jesus has transformed my life 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’ example to find the best way to reach the world. I've been constantly amazed by the different souls I've encountered on campus.  

God has blessed our family over the past 16 years and our partners in mission have been the primary way he has done that!  

For the last 3 years, I have been leading our effort to help our nearly 900 staff build mission partner support teams. As well as begin building the systems to love and care for our supporters and mobilize them for living faith-filled and mission-oriented lives.  Your support will deepen the impact we will have in the lives of tens of thousands of people in the coming year.  Hopefully, the first life will be your own.

Your Impact

Before I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and material 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 Our Lord. 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.  [email protected]
