Where I serve

I have the privilege of leading all of FOCUS' missionary recruiting and hiring efforts remotely from Fargo, ND.  I also help our in our HR department focusing primarily on leadership development for Regional Directors.  Now in my 12th year on staff, (three years on campus and eight years as a Regional Director), I'm excited to continue bringing Jesus Christ and His Gospel to college students all over our country and throughout the world. 

My Story

My life began to change the day I entered a FOCUS Bible study in the Fall of 2004.  I was a freshman at North Dakota State University.  At the FOCUS National Conference in 2005  I experienced God's love in life changing way.  After graduating from NDSU with a degree in business, Mandie and I were married and jumping into FOCUS as a couple on mission (and eventually a family on mission).  I absolutely love what I do bringing the Gospel to college students, and will continue to help our mission in whatever way the Lord is calling. 

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'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.
