Where I serve

God has called me to serve at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan. Go Lakers!

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead students to Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring this joy 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, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus own example to find the best method of reaching students.

The summer between my junior and senior year of college, I had the privilege to study abroad and live in a community of people striving towards holiness, and for the first time in my life I saw the beauty of what a life lived for Christ could be. I found a deep and intimate relationship with the Lord through entering into consistent, honest prayer and began to learn just how much the Lord desires to love not only me, but all people. Needless to say, there is a lot more to the story that I cannot fit into this little description box but if you’d like to hear more I’d love to share with you sometime! 

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. 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.
