My Story

I met CCO on my very first day of university when a missionary introduced himself to me as I walked through the campus halls. After a few years of wrestling with my faith, I decided that I wanted to give my entire life to Jesus. CCO was central to this decision. They showed me that the greatest and most authentic relationships are the ones rooted in Jesus–a relationship I had been longing for.

My Mission

I work full-time ‘in the field’ on university campuses, leading students face-to-face in faith studies and encouraging them to give their everything to Jesus. Why? Because Jesus changed my life and that of countless people around me; I know that he can do the same for them. I am so convicted that the most loving thing we can do for another person is to share Jesus with them and help them to know him better. That is my job and what I get to do every day. That is what brings me joy.

While Catholic Christian Outreach seeks to honour the expressed preference of each gift, I acknowledge that my gift is a gift to the ministry of Catholic Christian Outreach and will be used by Catholic Christian Outreach in a manner that it believes will best advance its charitable purposes. If my preference changes, it is my responsibility to inform Catholic Christian Outreach.
