Where I serve

After spending three years on campus as a missionary and a brief time off staff, God has called me back to FOCUS working on our Gift Operations Team at the Denver Support Center.  In this role I am able to serve our donors and missionaries in a meaningful way.  

My Story

I first encountered FOCUS my sophomore year at UNC (University of Northern Colorado). There I met one of the FOCUS missionaries, and got involved in a bible study. Later that year I went to SEEK, FOCUS’s national conference, and had a profound encounter with God. When I got back to campus I desired to reach more souls by leading my own bible study. It was later on in my senor year of college I felt the Lord calling me to be a FOCUS missionary.

I said “yes” to being a missionary and served three amazing years at Murray State University in KY. There I was able to lead students in bible study and discipleship by teaching them how to also lead others to Christ. Then after three years, I felt the Lord leading me away from being an on-campus missionary and from FOCUS. I then spent a couple months trying to figure out what to do and continued to live in Kentucky. Eventually I felt the Lord asking me to move back to Denver, CO and then back to FOCUS.

 It’s been a crazy and exciting journey so far. I would love to tell you more about it!

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.
