Where I serve

After graduating from Colorado State University in December of 2018, and serving for two years at the University of California Santa Barbara, God has called me to serve college students as a full time missionary on the digital outreach team. I am ecstatic to be able to use a different and unique platform in order to reach souls that are thirsting for Christ and to bring hope and light into student's lives in times of uncertainty. God is leading us! Digital Campus is a unique branch of FOCUS - in an apostolate where we believe friendship will change the world, it seems odd that someone would opt to do this over a screen, but we know that Digital Campus is so much more than that! There are not yet missionary disciples on every campus, in every Paris for in every city - we are the ones with the privilege to bridge that gap. 

Much like St. Paul visiting cities for a short time or writing letters from a distance, God is spreading our gifts around the country so that we might have the ability to help advance the kingdom in big ways. We are finding new and exciting ways to expand our reach as missionaries and to be generous with what God has asked of us.

My Story

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. As a member of Zeta Tau Alpha, I am passionate about outreach within Greek life and am grateful for the work that I am able to do as a FOCUS Greek missionary. 

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 to discuss my mission with Digital Campus and the specific ways in which you are able to support me. I'd be honored to share this mission with you in any capacity that you are able to give.
