As a 4th year university student, I had moved far from home and wandered far from my faith. During a small group faith study with CCO, my leader asked, “If you could know God personally, would you want to?”. Of course I did! But I didn’t say so. Instead, I went home to my residence and prayed. “Jesus, if You really want to know me – I want to know You too!”. I was overcome with the Holy Spirit. I felt the presence of God. I knew He noticed me and wanted to be in a relationship with me.

I love seeing hope catch fire in the hearts of my fellow Catholics when I explain to them that God is indeed on the move! That, through our unique mission, souls are being reached and lives are being changed. It is a complete privilege. I look forward to meetings with students, potential partners, and my fellow staff.

As a young family, Lee and I invite your prayers for blessing and protection upon us and our children – Benjamin 4, oliver 3, violet 1.
