Bless you!  Your support helps transform lives!  Thank you for you heartfelt love and generosity!

Where I serve

I serve as a development leader and executive advisor, advancing the mission work of FOCUS and FOCUS Mission Foundation.  It is a true gift and honor to work with such a faith-filled and capable team!

My Story

In 2004, a young man from George Mason University, Matt, came to our church to share the good news about FOCUS and his mission as a FOCUS missionary.  We asked how we could help, and our journey with FOCUS began.  For nearly 20 years, my wife Beth and I began supporting FOCUS and its important work with students on college campuses.  In 2013, we were blessed to have our daughter became a missionary with FOCUS where she met her future husband.  Since then, godchildren and other friends have been FOCUS missionaries and our support over that time has grown.  It only made sense, after so much time, to become part of the FOCUS team.  Today, I help lead some of the organization’s development efforts with the goal of taking benefactors on mission – with their minds, their hearts and their treasure.  It is a blessing and a privilege to be part of this extraordinary mission in the faith.  I am truly a blessed man.  Praise God!
