For the past 15 years, Andrea (my beautiful wife) and I have been serving as full-time missionaries with FOCUS. We have been all over the country serving students at different universities, organizing and putting on our national conferences (SEEK) and trying to make disciples of all nations by serving on foreign missions with FOCUS. In 2016, we moved to FOCUS’ National Office in Denver, CO where I now work as a manager for Digital Outreach and Andrea works part-time from home with our Alumni Department as she watches our children. If I’m not coaching and helping my staff work with the students, alumni and parishioners around the country, you’ll typically find me on video conference calls doing group coaching with students, alumni and parishioners on evangelization, prayer, leading Bible studies or finding ways to advance the mission in this new digital age. Lastly, our family loves being close to the Rocky Mountains and exploring the outdoors with our children, Ben (11), Max (9), Louis (6), Zelie (4) and Colette (1.5)! Check out some pictures below!
As a missionary family, our greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. Our lives have been transformed by Jesus and we 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. We look to Jesus own example to find the best method of reaching the world. We’ve been constantly amazed by the different souls we’ve encountered on and off of campus. We look forward to continuing this with our Digital Campus and Alumni Departments and becoming more engaged with making disciples in our local parish.

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial 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 on campus from all parts of the country. 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.
