Where I serve

I am privileged to serve the mission of FOCUS through working on the Events Team at headquarters in Denver.  Our rock-star team plans every aspect of the national conferences that reach out to thousands of people every year.  This coming January 13,000 college students will experience Christ's love through SEEK 2017 and it's our responsibility to make sure all of those students are given a world-class event experience.

My Story

Before my time at FOCUS I spent time working in Catholic camp ministry where I met my beautiful wife, Lauren.  We have three children: John Paul (3), Charlie (2), and Ellie (4 months) and they are such a joy!  In the course of our family's story we knew that we were being called to work for the mission of the Church in some capacity.  Both Lauren and myself have been greatly changed through the work of some beautiful Catholic ministries and we feel the call to give back.  After working alongside FOCUS for 3 years in campus ministry we fell in love with the mission and decided it was time to look into giving our time and talents to this mission of knowing Christ and making Him known.  

Your Impact

So now we find ourselves on mission; relying on the support of others who feel called to join in this good work. Bld. Teresa of Calcutta once said, "Some give by going and others go by giving." Through your contribution you are 'going by giving' and placing yourselves in the midst of this mission.  You are touching the lives of thousands of college students in a way that you may never be able to otherwise. I am called to give by going and I can't thank you enough for going by giving to the twofold mission of FOCUS and our family. Your contribution goes directly to our family to help us live out this mission that we couldn't do alone! May God bless you abundantly and know that our family keeps you in our prayers daily.
