Where I serve

I'm a third-year missionary serving as the Team Director at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA, far from where I was raised in small town Horton, KS.

My Story

My life was changed forever as a college student at The University of Kansas in Lawrence, KS. I experienced the liberties that college has to offer, for good or for bad. I found myself lacking sufficient happiness despite the free will to make my own decisions. 

With the guidance of FOCUS Missionaries and others, I learned to order my life toward the way Christ lived, which has renewed my entire life. Now, I’ve received this free gift of life and I must share it with everyone, especially on the college campus.

Your Impact

I've said yes to following Jesus Christ in a radical way by being a full-time missionary! Part of this yes is asking for the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to sponsor me as I share Christ's teachings at Temple University. I never go on mission alone; I want to plant the flag on campus in the name of my mission partners who are the backbone of everything that happens in this mission. If this mission inspires you in any way, I want to talk to you!
