Senior Manager of Talent & Leadership Development

Where I serve

I serve as a Senior Manager on our Talent & Leadership Development team. Our team is devoted to finding and cultivating the skills needed for the current and future leadership needs of the mission of FOCUS. As a rapidly growing organization with many young leaders, we invest in the development of our people so that they can become more effective missionaries and leaders. 

My Story

When I was in college, I spent a summer serving the poor in Belize: building schools, fixing houses, and more. The poverty was heartbreaking, but I quickly realized the worst poverty of all was the individuals who did not know that they were loved – either by their families or by our God. My eyes were opened to see this same poverty all around me in the US: men and women who had never encountered the infinite love of an infinite God. I knew that I wanted to give my life to this. 

My dream is that every person will know that he or she is deeply loved and desired by our heavenly Father, and that each person will be moved to give the authentic gift of himself or herself in response. FOCUS missionaries are in the trenches of college campuses, where the love of the Father is often disregarded or attacked, and they are working to bring this to reality. They bring hope and build a culture of life through relationship with Jesus, and it is a great privilege for me to offer my time and talents to this mission.

Your Impact

This mission is only possible through the spiritual and financial support of mission partners: men and women like yourself who care about sharing the message of Jesus with the world. Please join me in changing the world for Christ by investing in this mission. I’d be honored to partner with you on our shared journey to eternal life.
