“So, being affectionately desirous of you, we were ready to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves, because you had become very dear to us.”

1 Thessalonians 2:8

Where I serve

I’m excited to share that I am serving my first year as a FOCUS missionary at California State University Long Beach!

My Story

I grew up Catholic in a small town of 4,000 in rural Wisconsin. Despite being a relatively faithful member of my Church and well performing student-athlete, I also was living a life contrary to the Gospel when I thought no authority figures were watching. After going through a large transformational period my senior year of high school, I found that living in relationship with God actually gave me life rather than suppressed it. I became involved with FOCUS almost immediately my freshman year at the University of Kansas, which helped me cultivate a robust daily prayer life, attend Mass daily rather than weekly, and assent to Jesus call to Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations by leading Bible studies and leading my fellow students to deeper relationship with Him (Mt 28:19). Having experienced the abundant life Jesus has given me through placing Him at the center of my life, I sincerely desire to help others do the same, which is why I said “yes” to being a FOCUS missionary! 

Your Impact

Being a full-time missionary means that I put my all into doing what I’m able to help bring about conversions of the souls that I am sent to. Because of this, it means I rely on the generosity of mission partners to support myself and my beautiful wife, Mikala, as I pursue the lost souls of God’s children on the college campus. Without the profound generosity of my mission partners, none of my work is possible!

If you are curious about partnering with me, or just simply want to hear more about what I do, let me know the best way for me to reach you and I can schedule a meeting for us to connect; it would be an honor to share in my mission with you!
