God has called me to serve college students. Going into my second year as a FOCUS missionary, I will again be serving at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. Go Falcons! Spending the past school year out at BGSU, I’m very excited to be going back for the 2023-’24 school year to continue to invite students to have a deep, personal relationship with Jesus. As a former student-athlete myself, I have the pleasure of reaching out and serving the student-athletes at BGSU!
During my time in college, I had a somewhat unconventional encounter with Jesus Christ that radically changed my life. I’d be more than happy to tell you all about it sometime, so feel free to reach out!
My faith experience in college started similarly to how many college students’ live their lives on campus; a step away from the faith to try to find happiness and fulfillment in other worldly pursuits. During my first few years in Duluth, MN at the College of St. Scholastica, I lived a prodigal life, not centered on Christ, and was left feeling empty inside. It wasn’t until I met a FOCUS missionary who invited me to his Bible study that my life began to change. As a convert to Catholicism, he walked with me step by step in formation and friendship, leading me closer and closer to having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and the Church He founded. Through his discipleship, I answered when Jesus called, to “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19), which I intent to do at BGSU.
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 call me at 612-454-9211 or email me at [email protected].
