Where I serve

I serve as a campus missionary at Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville, Missouri.

My Story

During my time in college, Jesus revealed Himself to me in a way that has transformed my life. Out of this transformation grew an immense desire to share with others the abundant life that He wants to give each of us. 

In the Gospel of John, Jesus tells us "this is eternal life, that they should know You, the one true God, and the one whom You sent, Jesus Christ." As a missionary, I aim to model my life after Christ's in the Gospels, by truly encountering each soul that I meet, deeply investing in a few, and sharing the Good News through a life rooted in the Scriptures and Sacramental life of the Church. 

I long for every man on campus to know their true identity as beloved sons of God, having their hearts transformed by an intimate relationship with Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 

Your Impact

You were created for relationship, and that relationship is with Jesus Christ. There is no greater need for this truth than on the college campus. As a FOCUS missionary, I work full-time to ensure that men on campus recognize their need for this relationship - and to realize their Baptismal call of following Christ with their life. Such a high call requires great support; I cannot live it on my own. Therefore, I would like to invite you into living this mission with me. If you are interested in supporting this mission, please let me know the best way to contact you, and I would love to set up a meeting to share more about it. It would be an honor to have you partner with me in this mission!
