Where I serve

I am excited to serve as a first-year missionary at Murray State University in Kentucky!

My Story

Being raised Catholic, I was brought up in the teachings of the Church, but I never had an understanding of what a life of relationship with Christ really looked like. Toward the end of high school, I knew I wanted to deepen my faith. God led me to Belmont Abbey College in North Carolina, where I found a community of faithful Catholics. Thanks to the witness of the FOCUS missionaries there, I was inspired to seek a deeper relationship with Christ and His Church through prayer and the sacraments.

Halfway through my senior year of college, I felt God calling me to serve Him by fulfilling the Great Commission (Mt 28:19). Now I have the privilege to go out to the college campus and bring the Gospel to students who are searching for purpose and meaning in their lives.

Your Impact

It is a great privilege to put all my effort into bringing the Gospel to college students. However, I can not do this mission on my own! In order to be truly present to these students, I depend on the generous support of people who desire to see the Great Commission fulfilled. By giving in support of my mission, you are sending me out to reach these students and be a witness to them. Today’s college students will be going forth into family life, the workforce, the parish, and government leadership. By teaching students to live lifelong discipleship, we can make a real impact in accomplishing the mission that Christ gave us, to “make disciples of all nations.”
