I grew up in Houston, TX as the youngest of three kids. I heard and saw the gospel throughout my childhood from my two incredible parents. I always thought that being a Christian was all about being a “good kid,” not getting into too much trouble and doing well in school. During my senior year of high school that idea was flipped upside down. God started prodding me to ask questions and dig deeper to find out more about what it means to be a Christian. Through that process and over the last several years of following Jesus in Houston and in Fort Worth, I’ve come to understand more and more who God really is, how much He loves me (for no good reason) and how His grace covers all. He paid the cost for my sin and my punishment was put on him so that I could have new life. God continues to reveal more about Himself and how much I need Him all the time, and He continues to push me and challenge me to become the man He created me to be. “God shows His love for us in that while were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
My favorite thing about working with college students is the ability to be in their lives and really see the specific ways that God grows them and uses them. It is incredible how refreshing it is to be a part of God’s work in individuals’ lives as well as His work on college campuses. College is where a lot of my growth as a believer happened, so I want to help others grow in that same stage of life.
