“Surely there must be more than this!” I said to myself at university.

I was not fulfilled in my athletic and academic achievements, nor in my career ambition or desires of popularity. Then I encountered CCO one afternoon and signed up for a faith study to explore my Catholic faith.

I learned that God loves us personally and that Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins. I also understood that Jesus desires an intimate relationship with me. Over the next few years I gave God more room in my life.

Eventually one day I took a leap of faith and invited Jesus to be the center of my life. I found the ultimate truth, happiness, and love in a life-giving relationship with God. His love fulfilled me in ways that achievements, other relationships, and ambitions could not.

There is more: a life with Christ.

My passion is leadership and evangelization — that young men and women would encounter the love Jesus wishes to offer them. I will be working at the University of Ottawa as a campus missionary for this purpose.

Jesus changes lives. One year I worked in Montreal at Concordia University. I met a young man named Elias who was searching for community. He accepted my invitation to a faith study, and went on a journey of conversion that semester. He felt God’s love in a tangible way and began sharing his faith with friends. Elias eventually became baptized into the Catholic Church and I had the privilege of being his Godfather.


Please pray for our team and our student leaders at the University of Ottawa. That we may be united in the mission of proclaiming the Gospel and that we may be gifted the power of the Holy Spirit.
