Where I serve

The Lord has called me to serve at the University of Illinois at Chicago (Go Flames) for my second year as a campus missionary! I spend most of my time at our Newman Center coffee shop, Cor Coffee, hanging with students at my apartment, or exploring Chicago.

I love talking about how the I fell in love with Jesus and how His Love has transformed my life, so please feel free to ask!

My incredible team!! (Grace, Daniel, Ella, myself + Darien)

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ and the Beauty of His Church. My life has been, and continues to be, transformed by Jesus. I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. It was during college that I learned the difference between loving Jesus and being in love with Jesus. This difference may seem small, but it is the reason I am firm in my understanding of our call to mission. Every day is an opportunity to live the Abundant Life. What a gift it is to encounter students at UIC and live this life with them!

Your Impact

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 have already been blessed with some of the most amazing people who have chosen to journey with me as I serve at UIC. If you are interested in partnering with me, please reach out to me and we will schedule an appointment. I would be honored to share this mission with you! 

Let's be soldiers.

By building genuine friendships, we meet students on a deeper level.

Teach Others to Share Christ

We teach students how to share the gospel, who in turn teach other students how to pass it on …
