– John 17:21

Where I serve

I will be serving college students at Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama. My job as a full-time missionary will be to lead students to Jesus Christ, through bible studies, discipleship, retreats, and living life together! I am looking forward to this year and all that the Lord has in store.

My Story

I grew up in Grapevine, Texas and was raised Catholic. I was fortunate to have had an amazing church community in middle and high school to where I felt at home in the Catholic church. Going to Texas A&M University, I had every intention to continue practicing my Catholic faith but I did not know that a personal relationship with Jesus Christ was what I needed. Being surrounded by students at St. Mary’s Catholic Center chasing after their faith in a way I had never seen before, made me want to grow and seek more than what the world was offering me. My sophomore year I joined a FOCUS bible study and attended a FOCUS mission trip and learned that I cannot do this faith journey alone. FOCUS continued to give me opportunities to pursue my faith such as Summer Projects, SEEK, and an amazing community. Now I am so honored and excited to go bring Christ’s joy to Auburn’s campus!

Your Impact

This is where YOU come in! As a full-time missionary, I have the opportunity to fundraise my salary and bring others into this mission with me. If you want to partner with me, please feel free to reach out to me and we can schedule an appointment. I would love to hear your story and have our missionary hearts join together to bring Christ to others!
