God has called me to serve for a second year at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, ND! You’ll typically find me hanging out around campus, the Newman Center, at local coffee shops, and exploring all things good and beautiful in the surrounding area. The Lord has blessed me with incredible teammates and amazing students to share the love and joy of Christ with. I am excited and honored to continue to walk with students and show them the heart of Jesus and His Love for them. I have a pretty neat story about how Jesus has changed my life and continues to transform it. I would love to meet you and share it with you! 🙂
Meet the team! I am so blessed to be serving alongside Zane, Hannah, Jenna, and Josh this year.
My life has been transformed by forming a personal relationship with Jesus, which resulted from my experience with FOCUS as a student at the Colorado School of Mines. While pursuing a degree in Chemical Engineering, my faith became a checklist item to complete alongside my academics and involvement in a sorority. I knew who Jesus was and about His Church, but I did not truly know Him or his overwhelming love for me. I had not been satisfied and did not know the abundance and happiness I desired.
It was in this place that a FOCUS missionary invited me, little by little, to give my ‘yes’ to Jesus. The missionaries in my life reflected Christ to me every day, and I began to see glimpses of His Heart, in big and small ways. In continuing to say ‘yes’ to Jesus in faith, He provided in abundance – transforming my life and giving me the grace to say yes to the call to be His missionary. It was Him I was seeking all along – and upon finding Him, my life became full.
As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ and affirm their identity as beloved sons and daughters of the Father. I came to know the Lord through authentic friendship and joy, and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the beauty of a life lived with Christ. I deeply desire to affirm those I meet that they are seen, known, and loved. 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 those souls I have been entrusted to serve. I truly believe lives will continue to be transformed through this mission, and I am incredibly blessed and thankful to directly witness all the Lord will pour out in this adventure!
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 send me on mission. I’ve been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus. It is through the kindness and generosity of YOU that I may fully enter into the lives of students on campus and walk with them as they discover who they are and the greatness they are made for in Christ.
I’d be honored to share this mission with you! 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! You can reach me at 262-888-2124 or [email protected].
