Welcome friends! I’m excited to share more with you about the mission of FOCUS!

Where We serve

I serve as a full-time Catholic missionary with FOCUS – the Fellowship of Catholic University Students. I am blessed to introduce men and women on our college campuses to Jesus Christ. Christ at work through the mission of FOCUS is fostering the kind of Christ-centered leadership necessary for the renewal of our Church, country, and world!

Our Story

Throughout my college experience I was searching for answers, feeling empty, and looking for purpose. I had head knowledge of God, but very little understanding of the intimate relationship Jesus desires with each of us. In my searching post graduation I joined a Bible study led by a student involved with FOCUS at the University of Nebraska. I was later invited by FOCUS missionaries to attend a FOCUS National Conference in Grapevine, TX which served as a life-changing catalyst, fueling my desire to know our Lord personally.

These experiences awakened within me an understanding of Christ’s call. The call He issues each one of us in His final words: Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and behold, I am with you always, to the close of the age. (Matthew 28:19, 20)

I left my job to serve as a missionary with FOCUS and devote myself to introducing others to the One who continues to change my life – Jesus Christ. I have served on several college campuses since 2009 and am now in my 7th year with FOCUS serving as Program Director, helping to oversee 21 campuses in the Southeast region.

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of convicted individuals like you to partner with me through this mission. Please consider the impact you can have by financially supporting me in this mission as together we can give the gift of our yes to the Lord – reaching men and women with the truth, sharing with them their God-given purpose, and the unspeakable riches of the love of Jesus Christ. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you. I’d be honored to share this mission with you.
