He said to them, Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men. Immediately they left their nets and followed Him.

Matthew 4:19-20


Where I serve

I am on mission in Michigan! This will be my second year at Northern Michigan University in Marquette, MI. The Upper Peninsula is a beautiful, adventurous place to serve and walk with students on their journey to sainthood!

My Story

In my time at Iowa State University, I encountered people radically living out a relationship with Jesus Christ. I was blessed to live with FOCUS missionaries my senior year at Iowa State, and the way they joyfully lived transformed my own life. Everything they did stemmed from a deep understanding that they were loved and a longing for others to know true love in Jesus.

I graduated in May of 2021, and started working as a graphic designer. In my year away from college, Jesus increased the desire in my heart to live His mission of making disciples of all nations. When FOCUS re-opened their applications this May, the Lord provided a life-changing opportunity to leave everything behind and follow Him.

Your Impact

It is not just me going to campus. I rely on a team of supporters who are behind me in prayer and finances in order to reach students who need hope. Jesus calls everyone to participate in His mission, but the role looks different for everyone. By being my mission partner, you have the opportunity to answer this call and aid not only in the salvation of souls, but to also change the future of the church as a whole. 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.
