Ephesians 2: 1-8

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at Virginia Tech in order to grow in authentic friendship, faith, and virtue!

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ.  When I was in college, my life was transformed by Jesus through the discipleship of FOCUS missionaries. I had tried to find purpose in life, but ended up putting my worth in my schoolwork and engaging in the typical college culture. By the grace of God, I realized the void I was feeling in my life was from a lack of relationship with Jesus. Today, I desire nothing more than to bring this joy I have received to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. I look to Jesus own example of humility and investing deeply in a few to find the best method of reaching the world!

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.
