Where I serve

I will be serving at DePauw University, which is located ~45 minutes outside of Indianapolis, IN. DePauw is located in Greencastle, IN which is surrounded by the beauty of the outdoors while still being only a short drive to bigger surrounding cities.

Here is a picture of us at New Staff Training this summer. We’re a bunch of eager missionaries ready to set the world on fire with our faith and with a big dose of enthusiasm. Can’t wait to see where this journey takes us! PLACEMENTDAY

Here’s the team from left to right: myself, Isaac Cohen, Lauren Meade, and then our team director Caroline Walker.

My Story

My faith journey began at St. Ann Parish in Stoughton, Wisconsin. During my time there, I actively participated in mission trips and community service, which greatly nurtured my desire to serve and lead others in their faith journeys. After graduating from high school, I pursued higher education at Northern Michigan University in Marquette, Michigan.
Throughout my four years on campus, I was privileged to engage in missionary endeavors on three distinct occasions, each year presenting unique opportunities for service. These transformative experiences instilled within me a passion to extend my outreach to college communities and also globally, fostering an aspiration to pursue a missionary role with focus.



Your Impact

 I have chosen to answer the Lords great commission in Matthew 28:19-20 by setting out to make a disciple of all nations. By supporting me, you’re aiding Jesus in guiding people to faith and the sacraments through my efforts. Each person I reach is made possible solely by the generosity of my mission partners. Therefore, I extend my heartfelt gratitude in advance for your prayers and financial support.
