Where I serve

I have the pleasure of serving college students from my regional outpost in Fargo, ND.  If I'm not in my office I'm out serving our staff which range from North Dakota all the way to Ohio.

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.  Unknowingly I lived a double life until I went to the FOCUS National Conference in January 2005.  I experienced God's love in such a transformative way that when I went back to campus, I was all about knowing God more and serving his people.  By Fall of 2005, I started my own Bible study.  In 2008, I was married to Mandie and I accepted a position with FOCUS.  We began mission work at the University of Wisconsin-Madison the Fall of 2008.  In 2011, I was asked to step into higher leadership within FOCUS, which is where I currently serve.  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.
