Where I serve

This will be year 3 for me as a FOCUS missionary. I was originally sent to Bowling Green State University to work as a campus missionary there. Due to a string of health issues and other trials I was pulled from campus and have been working with FOCUS Missions for the past year and a half. FOCUS Missions is a branch of FOCUS that sends students and missionaries on mission trips all over the world. My time serving in this capacity has been great, and I have learned a lot that I can take with me, but my journey is taking me somewhere new. This summer I will be heading to the University of Southern Mississippi to serve as a campus missionary once again. I am incredibly excited for what lies ahead. There is a lot more to the story of how I ended up where I am. Jesus orchestrated it all, and I would love to share with you how it all happened! Contact me if you would like to hear more about the amazing things God has done.

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 know the life-changing Person who is 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 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 when considering the best method of reaching the world with the Gospel. Throughout my time in FOCUS I have learned that a few close relationships can reach farther than you would imagine. That's how Jesus spread His message, and we are simply continuing that work today.

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.
