I am blessed to serve at South Dakota State University in Brookings, South Dakota!
I was blessed to be introduced to the Catholic faith by my parents who raised me Catholic and sent me to Catholic school. However, it took me until late in college to develop a relationship with Jesus and our Blessed Mother, a fruit that was definitely produced by invitations from my university’s FOCUS team at the Newman Center.
My senior year of college was simply transformative. However, the idea of surrendering my life to Christ was terrifying at the time. But don’t worry, Jesus and Mary came through big time. One by one, in my last semester of college, I began saying more small “yeses” to God until I felt the call to give a full surrender and start mission with FOCUS – 4 days before graduation and one week before FOCUS new staff training commenced.
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’ve been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus! If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I’d be honored to share this mission with you!
