Where I serve

The Lord has called me to serve at the University of Utah with my amazing team- Evan, Giuliano, and Alli! Go Utes! 

My Story

When I first went to college, I thought diving fully into the typical college lifestyle was going to take me on some of the greatest adventures and lead me to absolute fulfillment. However, I found that the deeper I dove the lonelier and unsatisfied I became. It wasn’t until I was introduced to FOCUS that my life started to turn around. The FOCUS missionaries, through their authentic friendship, put me on a path towards Jesus Christ which has radically changed my life forever. The joy, fulfillment, love, and peace I have encountered through my relationship with Christ is almost unspeakable, and now I feel I must share it with others! I truly believe that college is a pivotal moment in a young person’s life that sets them up for a certain trajectory. Usually this trajectory is pointed away from Jesus and His church, which is why I feel so honored to be called to this mission that grounds students in Jesus's love. I love being able to bring the light of Jesus’s word among the students in Utah.  

Your Impact

Life with Christ is the greatest adventure. I never imagined that this would be the direction my life took, but I'm SO glad it did. 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. If you are interested in partnering with me, please contact me via email or phone so we can schedule an appointment. I'd be honored to share this mission with you.
