I grew up in a Catholic family, went to Catholic school and attended mass every Sunday. However, I never got much out of it. The way I saw it, Jesus was only someone to go to when I had a problem in my life, but I didn’t have any. As far as I was concerned, my life was perfect.

About 4 years ago I arrived at university and my life was no longer perfect. I was needing answers to some big life questions. It was following the Discovery faith study that I was invited to place Jesus at the centre of my life, for the first time in my life. I accepted that invitation. After years of searching I had found the love my heart was longing for. I realized that Jesus did know my name and He was offering me intimate and personal love.

It is because of this moment that I have experienced profound healing, forgiveness and mercy, both for myself and others. I have come to know the profound love God has for me and know that the message of the gospel has power to change lives.

This year I have the privilege of working as a campus missionary at Queen’s University in Kingston. I am excited to join their vibrant community and with my team bring many souls to Christ.

I am looking forward to journey alongside students as they come to know the Father’s love for them and respond to His invitation to be missionary.


For the students I will meet this year, that they would come to know Jesus in a personal way.

For all CCO missionaries, that we would be bold and full of joy in our proclamation of the gospel.

For myself and my family.
