While in university, I lived on my own and had to ask myself if I wanted God in my life. I met CCO and gradually came to a deeper understanding of the faith I’d known since I was a kid. It was because of CCO, and their Rise Up Conference, that I finally gave my life entirely to Jesus.
From that day on, I felt something in my heart calling me to staff. I put that call on the back-burner and it took over a year (and God speaking to me through many people) before I answered the call to missionary life with CCO.
Since joining Staff in 2017, I’ve loved leading others to encounter Jesus personally, laughing with students, and accompanying them to become leaders on campus who have a heart to make Jesus known. My missionary journey has led me to Vancouver, where I serve as the Campus Team Leader at Simon Fraser University. This role allows me to see what God is doing on the campus and challenges me to follow him. This matters because through following God’s will, renewal at SFU and the Lower Mainland will be fulfilled! I want people to love Jesus, to lead their families in a Christ-centred way, to support priests and other religious who have missionary hearts, and ultimately, change the world.
