My Story

As a college freshman I walked into the Newman Center looking to continue practicing my Catholic faith, but God had something even bigger in store; He invited me through the FOCUS missionaries and other students into a relationship with Him.

Jesus invited me into a relationship with Him and into a life that was filled with abundance. “I came so that you may have life and have it more abundantly.” (Jn 10:10) This abundant life was present in the community at my Newman Center as well as a life of prayer and the Sacraments.

As I was preparing to graduate college and the decision for what I would do after college approached, Jesus made it clear to me how He wanted to give me an abundant life. I said yes to being a FOCUS missionary where I can invite college students into the same intimate relationship with God that I was invited into.

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! You can reach me at (515) 729-6414 or by email at [email protected]
