Serving in FOCUS Missions

Welcome to my personal support page for my mission with FOCUS!

After graduating from the University of Northern Colorado, I answered the call to be a missionary with FOCUS in 2012. Since then, I have been on a journey of faith serving as a full-time missionary!

I served as a campus missionary from 2012-2013 at Minnesota State University- Mankato...
Then I helped bring FOCUS to Eastern Michigan University serving as a campus missionary at the first FOCUS campus in the state of Michigan...
Last year I moved to FOCUS national headquarters to work in National Recruitment, helping hire hundreds of passionate young men and women as FOCUS campus missionaries...
And most recently I have taken on a role in FOCUS Missions, the department of FOCUS responsible for our international and domestic mission trips!

Why FOCUS Missions?

"Be servants of communion and of the culture of encounter! I would like you to be almost obsessed about this. Be so without being presumptuous, imposing “our truths”, but rather be guided by the humble yet joyful certainty of those who have been found, touched and transformed by the Truth who is Christ, ever to be proclaimed" - Pope Francis, homily from World Youth Day, Rio de Janeiro

It is exactly this "culture of encounter" that we seek to facilitate in FOCUS Missions. Our mission trips serve as an opportunity for thousands of college students to encounter Jesus Christ in the poor- those people they go to serve, as well as their peers and fellow leaders.

Our mission trips are much more than a "service trip", since our goal is not just to serve the physical needs of a community, but also the spiritual needs. For this reason, all of our trips are totally Christ-centered, saturated with prayer and the sacraments!

This "culture of encounter" we practice on mission is then brought back home with our students when they leave the mission site... back to their houses and dorms, classrooms and practice fields. Our hope is that the call to mission can then be translated to their daily lives, bringing about real transformation in their lives!

Mission Support Team

However, I can't fulfill this mission alone! As full-time FOCUS staff, I rely completely on the support and generosity of individuals and families like you to continue this work. I would like to invite you to prayerfully consider joining me on this mission on the college campus as part of my Mission Support Team.

There are two big ways you can join me as a Mission Partner: through your financial support and through your prayer.

Specifically, I am looking for individuals and families who desire to make Christ known on the college campus are willing to support me on a monthly basis. This is incredibly important to the success of this mission, because this is how I get my funding and how I am able to continue this work!

Do you feel you are being called to give to this mission?

I am still working on building up my Mission Support Team to be fully funded. If I can find 7 individuals or families who are willing to commit to supporting me at $100 / month, I will be 100% fully funded and will be able to devote myself 100% to this mission!

Please remember me and this mission in your prayers and I would be honored to pray for your personal intentions as well!

God Bless!
