Where I serve

Right now I am serving on the FOCUS Missions team in Colorado. FOCUS sends students on mission trips all over the world, and I am working to make those trips even better. It is a pretty crazy story how I ended up working where I am now. Jesus orchestrated it all, and I think you should hear it sometime! Contact me sometime and I will tell you all about it.

My Story

If you asked me if I would be a missionary 5 years ago, I would have laughed in your face, but God has a funny way of bringing people to where He wants them. When I was in college I was a drug and alcohol addicted thrill seeker. I did everything possible to get as high as I could. Shortly after graduating college, this thrill seeking lifestyle caught up with me. I was test riding dirtbikes when I crashed and another rider hit me, instantly paralyzing me from the belly down. After almost losing my life I began to question the way I had been living. Eventually this led to me picking up a Bible and reading through it. A few months in I had a dream that transformed my life. I realized that Jesus is real and that led me to give my life to Him. As I grew in my faith I realized that I had something that needed to be shared. I knew the life-changing person who was able to find people in the darkest of places. 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.

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.
