Where I serve

Based out of Fargo, ND, I serve the University of Mary, the University of North Dakota, North Dakota State University, the University of Minnesota-Duluth, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and Northern Arizona University as a Senior Regional Director in the West Area.

My Story

My life began to change the day I entered a FOCUS Bible study in the Fall of 2004 as a freshman at North Dakota State University.  I lived a double life until the FOCUS National Conference in January 2005 where I experienced a conversion back to Christ and His Church. After being very involved with FOCUS as a student, I accepted a full time position in 2008, married my wife Mandie that summer, and began mission work at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the fall.  In 2011, I accepted the call to serve more missionaries and campuses as a Regional Director, and have worked with hundreds of missionaries and 30+ campus ministries since then.  I love what I do, and it's an honor to serve with my family and our Lord in this mission of making Jesus known and fulfilling His Great Commission on college campuses.

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.
