Where I serve

I will be serving at North Dakota State University, just down I-94 from my alma mater the University of Mary! I am truly blessed to serve in the state that has become a second home to me. I’m excited to invite students into authentic relationship with Christ and walk with them on the path to holiness. God has given me much, and it will be beautiful to see what good he brings in this new place.

My Story

I was blessed with powerful examples of faith in my family. My family’s witness to the faith led me to choose the University of Mary in Bismark, ND because I wanted a good Catholic education. In my first two years of college, I struggled with a complacent and self-centered mentality, which kept me from pursuing a meaningful relationship with Christ. But, by the grace of God and with the help of very good friends, I finally saw the need of radical change in my life. My last two years at school were truly transformed by Christ’s love for me in his sacraments and through his love for me in the people he had put in my life. As a FOCUS missionary, my desire is to be a joyful witness of Christ love, and to surrender myself to the Lord’s will for me on mission. Good men pushed me to strive for the heights in college, and I hope to do the same for men I encounter on mission.

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 would love to have you on mission with me through your prayers and support. You can reach me by email or phone if you have any questions or would like to set up a time to meet.
