St. Pope John Paul II once said, “Life with Christ is a wonderful adventure”. This wonderful adventure I have chosen to embark on has taken me to several places:
Austin, Texas where I served for 3 years at the University of Texas
Mobile Alabama where I served as Team Director at the University of South Alabama for 1 year
Lubbock, Texas where I served as TD at Texas Tech University for 1 year
FOCUS headquarters in Denver – first year at headquarters was in the Missions Department, and now I work in the Formation Department for Summer Projects. I am very passionate about Summer Projects as it is an incredible formation opportunity for students and missionaries! I think it will tremendously impact FOCUS as it continues to grow!! Take a look at our page for more info: https://focusoncampus.org/summer-projects
Before college I was Catholic but I didn’t know Jesus Christ. I didn’t even know what a personal relationship with Jesus was. What I knew was running, and I thought that was the key to my fulfillment success in running. It was during college that I realized the Catholic faith is not just about a particular set of doctrines or prayers. The Catholic faith is first and foremost and through and through, centered on the person of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is seeking each and every one of us and wants a personal relationship with each of us. He wants to bring us the fulfillment that we so desire (John 10:10!). As a missionary, I am striving to bring Jesus Christ to students and to bring them to Jesus Christ. My life has been given meaning and purpose because of Jesus, and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel.
As a Regional Manager on the Summer Projects team, I will be overseeing 3 of our Summer Projects locations and also directing one of them on the ground in the summer. There is so much planning and preparation that goes into each site, but having experienced Summer Projects on the ground in both Michigan and Montana the past two summers, I know that it is incredibly worth the hard work!! We expect to have around 600 students participate this upcoming summer! Please keep them in your prayers and connect me with any college students you know who may be interested in having the most incredible summer of their life!!
When I chose to continue my adventure with Christ by answering the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me on this mission. If you are interested in partnering with me on this mission, please let me know of the best way to reach you and we can schedule an appointment to meet up. I would be honored to share this mission with you!
“There is one ONLY THING to do here below: to love Jesus, to win souls for Him so that He may be loved. Let us seize with jealous care every least opportunity of self sacrifice. Let us refuse Him nothing – He does so want our love!” -St. Therese of Lisieux
