My Story

My freshman year of college, I accepted an invitation to join a bible study led by a FOCUS missionary. Little did I know that small yes would change my life forever. Through this bible study and a personal relationship with a missionary, Jesus Christ completely transformed my life. God used missionaries to walk with me deeper in my faith, and introduce me to a radically different way of life rooted in prayer, the sacraments, and service. In a world where college students especially are struggling with isolation and hopelessness, my greatest desire is to lead all students to the love of Christ and discover their identity as beloved children of God. I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel.

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. Feel free to reach out by phone (443-823-5060), or email ([email protected])
