You did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you received a spirit of of adoption through which we cry “Abba, Father” ~ Romans 8:15

Where I serve

God has called me to serve at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. As a varsity outreach missionary my goal is to bring the faith to student-athletes, having been a rugby player at the University of South Carolina this is a mission that I am very passionate about. I’m excited to help other college athletes make their faith the center of their life. Lets Go Ragin’ Cajuns!

My Story

Coming into college I was confronted with the decision that many college students face “Will I continue following the faith in my time at school?” Sadly, I answered no to this crucial question. After years of living within the normal college culture I found that I was not happy and not fulfilled by this lifestyle. I began feeling that there was something more to life and I saw it in my friends and family who lived their faith well. Through the living example of these individuals I began to put Christ at the center of my life and was transformed by His love.

God began inviting me more and more into life with him and I began to see the fruits of His work. But still something was missing, up to this point the journey to God was a private one. I felt God calling me to do more and that was when I was invited to interview for FOCUS. This was it, this was what God wanted me to do. The love that He gives us is not meant just for us, it is meant to be shared with the world and that is what I have seen through FOCUS. Leading a bible study for my teammates and friends on the rugby team just helped to reinforce this fact. It is a crucial part of our life in Christ to spread his love and answer his call to “make disciples of all nations.” That has lead me to where I am today and I’m thrilled to devout my life to Christ and his mission.


Your Impact

In being a FOCUS missionary I was challenged in many ways to give myself more and more over to Christ and to trust in Him. One of these ways is by relying on the generosity of others. We are all called to live mission in one way or another and I am inviting you to enter into mission with me through your donation. My mission partners play a crucial rule in my ministry and outreach, helping me to live generosity with the students that I am walking with. It would be a privilege to have you as a partner in this mission in helping college students find Christ and enter into deeper relationship with Him. If you have any questions or would just like to talk feel free to reach out to me at 443-547-0676.
