Support Quinn & Emily

Where we serve

God has called us to serve college students and we are excited to be placed at Belmont University where Quinn serves as the team director. We work with a great team alongside Fr. Gervan Menezes, the chaplain for University Catholic, the Diocese of Nashville's Catholic collegiate ministry. We are blessed to be leading students into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church and we would love to share with you the many ways He is working here in Nashville, TN!

Our Story


I grew up Catholic in Nashville, TN and attended the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. It was in college that God radically encountered me in tremendous ways through my now wife Emily and two FOCUS missionaries named Jake and Dominic. It was through their model that I came to more fully understand what it means to make Christ the center of my life and as Emily and I prepared to graduate and get married, we discerned God's call to generously give to others everything that had been given to us. We are very happy to be a part of FOCUS and to be sharing Christ with college students not only through our vocation as married people, but also as parents to our two sons Samuel and John.

Your Impact

When we answered the call to join FOCUS, we made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help our family through this mission. We have been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with us as we serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with us, please let us know of the best way to reach you and we will schedule an appointment. We would be honored to share this mission with you.
