Where I serve

I get to serve as a collegiate missionary at Clemson University. Although my alma mater is the rival school in the University of South Carolina, I’m extremely excited to serve college students and student athletes here.

My Story

Christ impacted my life in such a profound way that I couldn’t help but share his story to others. This is something that I honestly didn’t plan on doing after college but it’s something that I’ve felt called by the Lord to do. My focus missionary helped me realize how awesome and fun it was to follow Jesus. I hope to do the same at Clemson.

Your Impact

Jesus is doing all the work here, I’m just opening up the door. My job is to show these awesome guys that living out their faith is the best thing they can ever do with their lives, no matter where life takes them. College is such a crossroads where when you’re independent for the first time, guys can continue to pursue their faith or slack off and choose not to anymore. That’s why I’m doing this for the next two years. I want to show guys that lifting each other up in this community driven by faith is the best thing they can do in college and for the rest of their lives.
