Where I serve

God has called me to answer His great commission to go and make disciples of all nations. I am now serving as a missionary at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse!

My Story

When I was a student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (Roll Badge), I first had a true and real encounter with our Lord, then at FOCUS Summer Projects out in Big Sky, MT. These encounters have also involved FOCUS missionaries walking with me in friendship and helping me grow my relationship with God. My desire to know, love, and serve our Lord has grown ever since. This desire has led me to answer Christ’s call to serve as a full-time missionary.


Your Impact

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. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I’d be honored to share this mission with you! You can get in contact with me at [email protected]
