“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.”

– 1 John 3:16

Where I serve

I am excited to be returning for another year at Bemidji State University, this year as the Team Director. I enjoy combining my love for exercise, the outdoors, and sports with encountering Christ and building relationships. As a missionary, I focus on assisting college students in experiencing a genuine encounter with Christ through accompaniment, divine intimacy, Bible study, and fellowship.

My Story

My greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. Jesus has transformed my life, and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus’ example to find the best way to reach the world. I’ve been constantly amazed by the different souls I’ve encountered on campus.

Your Impact

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.
