Where I serve

I serve as the Team Director at Lindenwood University located in St. Charles, MO. This is my fourth year with FOCUS and I am so excited to be heading back to Lindenwood for the second year. I love our students and I am so happy to continue walking with them. Below is the team:  Kolbe, Marie, Me, and Christian.

My Story

I was born and raised Catholic, but it wasn't until I went on a Steubenville Youth Conference my junior year of high school where things started to change for me. I always knew about God, but I didn't really know him personally, and that's what changed at this conference. I had many experiences of encountering God leading up to this moment, but I wasn't really sure what was happening or how to even practically have a relationship with God. My friends mom had signed me up for a teen discipleship week immediately following the conference and that's where I truly learned how to channel my encounter into a relationship with God.  After being impacted so deeply by Steubenville, I decided to pursue a double-major in Theology and Communications at Franciscan University of Steubenville. I was inspired to work for the Church, I just didn't know in what capacity. I thought I wanted to serve the Church through Media but I realized I wanted to be with people as they encounter Christ. Then I became a FOCUS Missionary.

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world. I've been constantly amazed by the different souls I've encountered on campus and their desire to reach their peers for Christ.

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.
