  You are amazing!  Your generosity is changing lives! Thank you for your love!

Where I serve

Your support is building life-changing connections between 1000+ missionaries and 80,000 supporters!  Along with my incredible team, we provide prayer, encouragement and training to help FOCUS missionaries work toward the recruitment and transformation of so many mission partners!

Fully funded missionaries are fully available for the gospel!  You help that happen!

Thank you for partnering with me and this mission!  My family is blessed by you!

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. Jesus has transformed my life and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus example to find the best way to reach the world. I’ve been constantly amazed by the different souls I’ve encountered on campus.  

God has blessed our family over the past 17 years and our partners in mission have been the primary way he has done that!  

For the last 4 years, I have been leading our effort to help our nearly 900 field staff build mission partner support teams. As well as advancing the systems to love and care for our supporters and mobilize them for living faith-filled and mission-oriented lives.  Your sponsorship will deepen the impact we will have in the lives of tens of thousands of people in the coming year.  Hopefully, the first life will be your own.

Your Impact

Before I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and material 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 Our Lord. 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.  [email protected]
