Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students. You'll typically find me hanging out at the basketball courts, the Newman Center, or meeting students around campus. Jesus has changed my life -- I would love to share with you in what ways he has and still is working in my life! Come find me and I'd love to share my story with you. 

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead to know and love Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring this joy and freedom I have experienced to students through the sharing of my life and the Gospel. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few who would later become his missionaries. I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world though investing in others through discipleship. I've been constantly amazed by the different souls I've encountered on campus.

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.
