21,000 students, the architecture of a lofty California school, and a view of NYC from campus...Where is this? Montclair State University in New Jersey. You'll typically find me hanging with students at the university gym, enjoying a good cup of coffee at the local coffee shops, and at the Newman Center. Honestly wherever the students are, that's where I am. I am constantly meeting new students and equipping them to live faithful and virtuous lives!
What do we truly desire? A fancy car? A lot of friends? In my experience, even when those awesome things are fulfilled, there is still something empty deep down. Something that can only be fulfilled by putting our trust in something greater than ourselves. "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full" (John 10:10).
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. This starts with building genuine friendships. It's something I'm doing on campus, and it's something we can all do wherever we are. 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 in order to reach the many. I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world.
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. My contact info is at the top of this page. I'd be honored to share this mission with you!

By building genuine friendships, we meet students on a deeper level.
We teach students how to share the gospel, who in turn teach other students how to pass it on …
