Where I serve
I have the wonderful opportunity to serve at Colorado State University in Fort Collins! "Fight on you stalwart Rams!" It has been a very blessed experience and I have really enjoyed getting to know the community here as well as experiencing life on the CSU campus. I am moving into my second year as a on campus missionary here and I am very excited to see how the men I invest my time into grow and mature in their faith and zeal for souls during this next year!
California to Idaho and now to Colorado. I lived in California, in the same small town, all throughout growing up. I left home to study chemical engineering and biochemistry at the University of Idaho. It was here that I first encountered FOCUS missionaries and one of the main reasons I am a missionary today. I was asked by our new pastor during the spring of my sophomore year to attend the SLS conference in Dallas in order to learn things about the group that would be coming to our campus in the fall. I went and learned a ton and was plugged into what is called the digital campus of FOCUS. It was here that I was first discipled and taught about evangelization by Luke. I began to lead a bible study and began to understand the importance of going out to new people, of sharing the faith. Then when new missionaries came to campus in the fall, I was moved off the digital campus and entered into discipleship in person with Andrew who would remain my discipler throughout the rest of college until eventually I would go to an interview weekend and experience something I had not experienced often before. I felt totally and completely inadequate to be a missionary and felt that I had failed to reach out to many of the souls God had placed in my life. I knew more completely than ever that I was not worthy to be a missionary, but God willing, I could become one and learn how to live mission radically with a true heart for the people of God.
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.
