Let's Set the World on Fire with the Love of Christ!

"If you are what you should be, you will set the whole world on fire!" -St. Catherine Siena

As a former professional and collegiate athlete, my goal has always been excellence. Excellence on the court, in relationships, and most importantly, in my faith. I'm excited to go out to the college campus and teach about the importance of excellence in all areas of life.

The Search for Truth & Love

I really believe that people are searching for Truth and love. God is love and Truth, so ultimately, they are searching for Him. The college campuses in America are distracting and pulling students away from their creator. Sex abuse, drug abuse, and living a promiscuous lifestyle is the norm on a college campus. But souls are being lost and lives are being destroyed. Living in Europe has helped me realize that America is spiritually the 3rd world.

How do we do it?

In order to change the culture we have to be counter-cultural. As a missionary, I feel honored that God would call me to be His instrument in changing lives. God wants His love and mercy to burn within our hearts. So, let's set the campus ablaze! Through authentic friendship and love, we can change the college campuses of America and ultimately the world.

"Young people of this world! You are not defined by your weaknesses or your failures. You are defined by the fact that you were created to be fully loved by the Father"
-Blessed John Paul II

Our goal is to invite college students into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ, inspire and equip them for a lifetime of Christ-centered evangelization, discipleship, and friendship in which they lead others to do the same!

This mission would not be possible without your support. This mission needs dedicated workers and dedicated supporters so that together, as a team, we can change our future leaders, doctors, and church for the better. Remember that "some give by going to the missions. Some go by giving to the missions. Without both there are no missions." -Blessed Mother Teresa

For the next year, I will be serving students at the University of Nebraska Lincoln to bring them into a relationship with Christ and to fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20). By financially supporting me, you'll be contributing to the New Evangelization and subsequently setting the world on fire for Christ!

FOCUS is a 501(c)3, and all donations are TAX DEDUCTIBLE and can also be counted as a portion of your tithe.

Thank you so much for your generosity and your passion for this mission! If you have any questions, prayer intentions, or thoughts about FOCUS, Varsity Catholic, or my ministry at the University of Nebraska feel free to contact me at

It has been such a joy to observe your growth in Christ through the years. You never waived in your faith and Christian leadership on our public high school campus and with the team. I am so looking forward to seeing how our Heavenly Father and His anointing on your life will minister to the young adults at the University of Nebraska.
