No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

Where I serve

San Bernardino, CA – I serve the many benefactors of FOCUS through the Philanthropy Engagement team as part of Mission Development. It is an honor to help others realize their call to discipleship. Through this role, I hope to play my part in continuing to build disciples for His Church.

My Story

Growing up, my Catholic faith was an important part of who I was, but it was not until college that I realized that there is a deep desire God has to be in communion with us.

FOCUS was a big part of that realization. I noticed there was so much richness about our faith that I had missed growing up. That Christ didn’t just want to be a symbol of love for me, He wanted to be love itself. God can do so much goodness with an open heart, we simply need to be willing. My mission is to help others know that God desires to be in relationship with them. Through this, we are able to fully practice our call to love others more perfectly. I am honored that I get to serve others because it is in serving that we find the purpose for our lives.

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. Please send me an email, and I’ll set aside time to get to know you better. I’d be honored to share this mission with you so that together we can build disciples for our Church. Thank you for your loving support.
