I spent my first two years as a missionary in Columbia, MO at the University of Missouri. After that, I spent two years in Storrs, CT at the University of Connecticut. I currently serve as a Regional Director managing missionary teams on seven campuses: Carnegie Mellon, Pittsburgh, St. Francis (PA), Edinboro (PA), Maine, UMass, and The U.S. Military Academy!
Above are photos from my different missionary assignments: Regional Director, Mizzou, and UConn (from top to bottom).
I love being a missionary! Helping young people to find their greatest joy in living a Christ-centered life is a dream come true! Please pray for me and my missionaries.
Heading into my freshman year of college, I had an image of God that I thought was quite normal. He gives me the rules, and its my job to play by them as best as possible. I had always conceived God as mostly a rule-giver and judge. In my spring semester freshman year at UF, I encountered God in a new way – person to person in prayer. This moment challenged my conception of God, and I was able to see that he desired a close relationship with me. God the Father, proved His love for me in giving up His Son up to death for me. This was no longer a distant truth, but rather a truth that had touched my heart.
“See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are.” (1 John 3:1)
The is the good news that Our Father in heaven loves us, desires us, and wants us to live with Him forever as His children. My story has led me to share this news with others, and it has brought me much joy.
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 reach out to me at the contact information listed below. I’d be honored to share this mission with you.
