Hi there! Call me EJ!

Thank you for your life-giving generosity!

Where I serve

I am a first-year missionary at Queens College in Queens, New York City, where I work joyfully to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Go Knights!


My Story

Throughout my undergraduate studies at community college and then at California State University, Sacramento, I always sensed that Jesus was calling me to serve Him and His Church in a deeper way than just going to Mass and participating in youth groups.

I pushed myself towards ministry work at the Sacramento State Newman Center as a student council member and helping various young adult groups in Sacramento. Those two years were full of joy and growth, but I knew in my heart that I desired to serve Jesus fully without constraint and share His thirsting, merciful Heart with others.

After finishing college in December 2023, I went to SEEK, a national FOCUS conference with 20,000+ attendees in 2024 alone, with my dearest brothers and sisters in Christ; two of which are also 1st-year FOCUS missionaries! I got to know the work of FOCUS and their vision for the New Evangelization and see the fruits of their labor!

I was moved by the invitation to become a missionary from talking with a FOCUS regional director at SEEK and I knew then that the Lord was calling me to show His Heart on college campuses with FOCUS!
