Where I serve

After serving two years as a campus missionary at the University of Vermont, God called me to work full time in the international missions department of FOCUS. FOCUS Missions sends thousands of college student out to the ends of the earth to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ and serve Him in the poorest of the poor. This past year, we sent out 90 mission trips to 43 countries! I truly believe that mission trips can be the catalyst for a college student to have the desire to change their campus for Christ and His Church.

My Story

The American college campus is one of the most influential places of our time. It is there that the future leaders of our nation and our world are being formed. Furthermore, it is in college that people choose to embrace their faith or reject it, and it is a place where students are faced daily with moral opposition and attacks on chastity, sobriety, modesty, and virtue.  Because of this, nine out of ten people lose their Catholic faith in college. Nine out of ten are choosing to chase after success or pleasure rather than eternal life and end up serving someone or something other than God. 

It was in college at the University of Connecticut where I met FOCUS Missionaries who showed me a different way to live.  They helped me to see that Jesus was more than a good man, but someone who loves us deeply for who we are! The love that these missionaries had for our Lord was something I had never seen. I saw that embracing my life of faith was a source of great freedom and joy. After college, I felt a call from God to be part of this mission of FOCUS myself, to lead others to a life with Jesus 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 on this mission. I've been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve the Lord through FOCUS. 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.
