I will be serving at Doane University in Crete Nebraska as part of the Bosco Project. Go Tigers! I will be serving here along with 11 other men. The Bosco Project is a newer initiative in Focus to create a place for men’s formation and to specifically focus on the recruitment of men.

My Story

image2 (1)My whole faith journey truly began when I got involved in the Newman center at Mcneese State University. Particularly when I met the FOCUS missionaries. They constantly pushed me for better and invited me to events such as Awakening. This photo is from that retreat and the group here is a new family I have had the pleasure of growing with. (Top row left to right, Grant, Owen, Logan, Kandalyn, Me, and Brady. Bottom row, Layla, Kaitlynn, Ashlyn, Ruthie, and Lauren). I attended Seek 2023, the Focus national conference, in January where I took the first steps to becoming a FOCUS missionary myself. These two events along with bible studies and one on one meetings with my missionary were pivotal in the growth of my relationship with God, my character, and my willingness to follow in the footsteps of the missionaries at our campus.image0 (1)

This photo is from new staff training from summer 2023. These are a few of the members of our small group that have helped me grow in brotherhood, accountability, and openness of the heart. (Left to right it is Simon, John, Lucas, Alonzo, Donavan, and Me.)

Your Impact

I was lost and was found, now it is my turn to help the next one in line.

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 of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I’d be honored to share this mission with you.
