As I head into my 6th year with FOCUS, I’m so excited to share that I will be returning this year as the Team Director of the FOCUS team serving Black Hills State University in Spearfish, SD. I am so humbled by this opportunity to serve the students and my teammates here at BHSU. Along with my 4 other teammates, I am joined on mission with my beautiful wife, Maclaine, who serves on the Marketing team with FOCUS. God is doing wonderful work here & I have a front row seat to marvel at His glory. Mac and I are so glad to be on this mission with you!
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 people I’ve encountered in my first four years as a missionary, and cannot wait to enter into this fifth year on staff with FOCUS. While life on mission is not without its challenges, what a gift it is to be called higher each day – to be called one step closer to becoming the saint that Jesus wants me to be! Insieme Verso L’alto!!
When Maclaine and I answered the call to join FOCUS, we made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help us through this mission. We’ve been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with us as we serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with me and Maclaine on mission this year, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. We’d be honored to share this mission with you.
