Where I serve

The Lord has invited me to serve the students at Clemson University in Clemson, South Carolina. As a full-time campus missionary, I will be walking directly with students by sharing life with them along with my five teammates. At Clemson, I will be given the opportunity to lead students in discipleship, in studying Scripture, and into a deeper encounter with Jesus Christ through the Sacraments.

My Story

As a student at Texas A&M University, I quickly became involved at Saint Mary’s Catholic Center where I frequently attended daily Mass and met some of my best friends. Later, through FOCUS Summer Projects, God began to reveal Himself to me more deeply through bible study, the Sacraments, authentic faith community, and personal prayer. It was through these encounters that I realized I was made to have a personal relationship with Jesus and through this relationship that I came to know Him and know myself more fully. Throughout junior and senior year, it became clear to me that sharing the Gospel with others was truly life giving. This zeal that had been gifted to me by the Father, through the Holy Spirit, led me to answer His call to become a full time missionary after graduation.

Your Impact

When I said yes to FOCUS, I also said yes to fully relying on God to provide for me both financially and spiritually. Through the generosity and sacrifice of my mission partners, I am able to serve on campus in order to fulfill God’s call to the Great Commission! If you are interested in hearing more about my story, my mission, and about FOCUS, please reach out. It would be an honor to share my mission with you.
