Where I serve

After serving my first year of mission at Angelo State University while finishing my Master’s degree, the Lord has called me to sunny Southern Florida to serve the students at the University of Miami and Florida International University as the Team Director! You’ll typically find me praying at the Newman Center, going on runs, playing sand volleyball, or hanging out with students on campus.Screen Shot 2024 06 08 at 7.11.34 PM

My Story

During my senior year of high school I recognized a deep desire for brotherhood and authentic friendship– in short, for something more. What better way to have this than by joining a fraternity in college? I joined a fraternity during my first semester at Texas State University and met some of my greatest friends and brothers. Through these men and FOCUS missionaries, I came to encounter Jesus Christ in a new and radical way.

The desire to live mission was quickly placed on my heart. I began to lead a bible study for the men in my fraternity and mentored some of them to start their own bible studies as well. Soon, I began to see the fruit that was being produced. Not only was I seeing a transformation happening in myself, I was also seeing how Jesus was transforming my fraternity and the men in it, too.

There is such a need for college students—especially young men and women in Greek life—to know that they are loved perfectly. I encountered Jesus’ perfect love for me in a radical way for the first time in college, and I can’t help but tell other college students that they too are loved perfectly. My time in Greek life during college changed the trajectory of my life! I am so blessed to now have the opportunity to walk with other young Greek men in their faith journey and time in college. If the college campus is a battle ground for souls, then Greek houses are the front lines of that battle. I am deeply convicted that this battle is one worth fighting and am ready to fight for the eternal souls of the men on my campus! Are you willing to join me in this fight?
