My Story

I applied for staff and began working for CCO in the fall of 2009, serving in our National Headquarters. A strong National Headquarters means a strong foundation for the movement to be able to grow and proclaim the Gospel. With this strong foundation, we hope to see CCO’s presence expand to more university campuses.

I have grown so much, spiritually, since being on staff with CCO. One area of growth is understanding the power of intercession so much deeper through working in the office. I have seen how doing little tasks – with great love and purpose for the salvation of souls – actually has an impact on people coming to know Christ.

Through prayer, doing the tasks that were before me, and trusting that the Lord would provide, I have experienced God’s supernatural generosity and providence through others in ways I could not imagine. When the Lord calls, he will provide all that is necessary to fulfill that call. We just need to do the work that He is asking us to do and receive the grace of trust that He will take care of the rest!


Please pray for a continued deepening in intimacy with the Lord and docility to the Holy Spirit.
Also, for continued opportunities for HQ staff to share the Gospel with those we connect with; especially supporters, students, friends, family and people in our parishes.
