Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students. I'll be hanging around the Newman center, recreation area, student union, Greek life, and anywhere I can reach a college student to tell them about Jesus.  Jesus changed my life in college, and I'd love to share my story with you! 

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. During college I gave my life fully to Christ and noticed that a lot of college students have lost their faith in Jesus due to the college culture or never had a relationship with Jesus. I am excited to bring the joys of Jesus into students lives so they can personally know Jesus and carry the mission of bringing their relationship of Christ to others to fulfill the great commission. 

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.

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.
