Where I serve

I have been called to serve as a campus missionary at the University of Illinois! I am thrilled to get work with Greek students, and I could not be more excited to be on mission with the U of I team!

My Story

I arrived at Iowa State University my freshmen year seeking my identity in all the wrong places on a college campus. I was so lost from the fact that my true identity is a child of God.  Then I encountered a FOCUS missionary on campus who brought me to Jesus. He never gave up on me and showed me that I could use my fraternity life to serve others rather than myself. Christ transformed my life. Following my reconversion to the Catholic faith, I have been pursuing relationship with the Lord and sharing the Gospel with others, especially Greek students! I graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and a minor in Biology, and now get to serve as a FOCUS missionary!

Your Impact

In living out the Gospel on campus, I rely completely on God to provide for all my needs, both spiritual and material. I am blessed with a team that supports me spiritually and financially so that together we can bring the Gospel to students on campus! Thank you for your yes in helping to bring the Gospel to the University of Illinois. I am so excited that you are going on this adventure with me!
