My Story

When I began college, more and more people in my life began referring to me as a “young man”. And more and more I found myself pondering: “What does it mean to be a man, anyway?

Entering college and throughout most of those years I felt insecure and incapable, and I knew that I was living a hidden life of sin. I did not know what it meant to be a man.

When I finally awoke to the painful reality of Romans 6:23For the wages of sin is death…” I was overwhelmed, crushed, and heartbroken when my own sinfulness manifested itself in my life.

It was FOCUS missionaries who were there for me.

Jesus Christ died for me and saved me – the only one who could. It was FOCUS missionaries who guided me to His healing. It was FOCUS missionaries who supported me during some of my darkest hours.

Through the work of FOCUS missionaries, cooperating with the grace of God, I have awoken to the bliss of the rest of Romans 6:23 “but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” I was freed from the bondage and shame of sin, to the glory of God. My confidence is now rooted in my identity as a beloved son of almighty God.

I have an understanding of what it means to be a man.

Now, I have committed my time to helping other young men not unlike myself. I want to reach those young men who have yet to discover what masculinity means, or who have a distorted, worldly view of our identity and responsibility, and role as men. My mission is to share with them what was shared with me: our first and fundamental identity lies in Christ. 

Your Impact

As a FOCUS missionary, I have the awesome privilege to share the gospel not just with the students I encounter on campus – but also with my mission partners! Then, my mission partners have the opportunity to support the financial needs of my mission work. If you are interested in hearing more about how I serve others as a Catholic missionary, please get in touch so we can set up an appointment. My phone number and email are linked above.

May God bless you!
