Where We serve

We live in Birmingham, Alabama where Connor serves as a campus missionary at the University of Alabama-Birmingham / Samford University, and Katie works remotely for FOCUS’ marketing department.

As a missionary, Connor spends his days sharing the love of Jesus Christ to students on campus through Bible studies and discipleship. Katie’s role in marketing invites her into a new mission field; allowing her to serve FOCUS missionaries and students by providing resources and helping them encounter God through beauty.

Our Story

What a gift it is for us to continue to share the gospel & make disciples of Christ through our work with FOCUS, the organization that brought us together, as we met during our time as missionaries on campus!

As a married couple, we have the unique opportunity to share Christ’s love by inviting our teammates and students into our family.

We got married on September 17, 2022!

After graduating from Texas A&M University and working for two years, Connor couldn’t ignore the burning desire to give his life entirely to Christ. This led him to FOCUS, where Katie was serving as a missionary after her life was radically changed when she encountered Jesus Christ in a powerful way during her time in college at Troy University. The FOCUS missionaries on Katie’s campus led her to Christ, teaching her how to pray, showing her authentic friendship, and challenging her to grow in virtue.

Now, we are able to do the same for other college students by living out Jesus’ call to make disciples of all nations. We want nothing more than to bring the love and joy of Christ 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 and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. With FOCUS, we look to that example to find the best method of reaching the world.

Your Impact

When we 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 amazing people who have journeyed with us as we work to bring souls to Christ. This mission wouldn’t be possible without them. If you are interested in partnering with us, please let us know of the best way to reach you and we will schedule an appointment.

We’d be honored to share this mission with you.
