My Story

When I came to college my freshman year I had no intention of living a Christ-centered life. Pretty soon I realized that what I thought would bring me happiness, didn’t quite satisfy me. I was living a life without joy, closed off to God and what He wanted for my life.

Then, in the summer before my sophomore year, God moved powerfully in my heart and showed me that I wanted more than the mediocrity I had settled for. I came to campus that next fall looking for something more. I found it when I went with a friend to a Cardinal Catholic event at Ball State’s Newman Center. There I met a Focus Missionary who invited me into a friendship. A friendship not only with him but more importantly with Jesus. Because of the Focus Missionaries at Ball State, my life will be changed forever.

Now, It’s my great joy that God has called me to serve as a Focus Missionary. So many college students today are living without hope or joy. I can’t wait to show these students the answer to their heart’s deepest desires, the person of Jesus Christ.

“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations” Matthew 28:18-19

Your Impact

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. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I’d be honored to share this mission with you.
