Romans 8:31

“What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” 

Thank you for answering the Lord’s call!

Where I serve

I am in my second year as a Parish Missionary at Our Lady of the Valley Catholic Church in Windsor, Colorado. I work with husbands and fathers, accompanying them on their own road to Jesus through missionary discipleship within the context of their vocation and as they discover their own mission from Christ.

My Story

IMG 3075Transplants to Colorado in 2005, my wife Rebecca and I have been active members of the Catholic community in the Archdiocese of Denver. Working first as a teacher before entering corporate America, we settled down to suburban life to raise a family. Late in 2020, God laid on my heart a burning desire to live a life on mission by sharing the Gospel and the beauty of Catholicism with all whom God puts in my path. Within a year, I left my insurance career and spent time with missionaries while discerning God’s will. In the summer of 2022, the Lord brought me to Our Lady of the Valley Catholic Church in Windsor, CO, where I have worked in partnership with our Pastor Fr. Gregg Pedersen and with FOCUS as a Parish Missionary. During the Summer of 2023, I joined FOCUS full time as a member of the Life Long Mission Team and I am excited to answer the call of the great commission in the modern day parish setting!

Your Impact

Your active support and companionship is what makes this mission possible!

When I first answered the call to mission, I had to make the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners for the support of my family of nine. While challenging, I’ve been blessed by the most amazing people who have journeyed with me and experienced acts of incredible generosity as I serve the Lord as a missionary. If you would like to hear more, please reach out to me at [email protected]. I would love to share our vision and my mission with you!
