I was hooked. Since my experience in college at Palm Beach Atlantic University, I always felt a yearning to serve God. The question though was always, how? The yearning grew stronger when I served in an internship at a local church in the summer of my junior year.  After graduating college, I returned to the Catholic Church and became involved with Life Teen ministry at Nativity, my church home. I was overwhelmed by the impact that the teens had on my life, as well as the impact that I had on them. It was truly God's hand preparing me for a greater role in His plan. 

It began with a mission trip to La Victoria in the Dominican Republic and being engaged with the children in that mission that serving our youth became my life's desire. A few weeks after returning home, I served as a chaperone, leading a group of about 70 teens from my parish to Covecrest, Life Teen's summer camp. It was then that I learned more about Life Teen, their ministry and mission to reach out to teens and teach them about Jesus Christ, and our beautiful faith. I was instantly hooked and clearly heard God's voice calling me to this ministry. It was then that I realized that I can no longer be casual about my faith and in God's call to serve His Children. In response to His call, I have taken a step in faith and have resigned my job at Wells Fargo bank and have made a two year commitment through the Life Teen Ministry as a full-time missionary. I will begin the process with a year of faith formation at their Covecrest mission base in north Georgia. The second year will be spent in ministry serving local parishes in a yet to be determined city. My desire is to develope the necessary skills so that I may be an instrument of God's love in serving the teens in our community. 

I need your help. First and foremost I ask that you pray that God will bless my efforts and my ministry. Secondly, I need your financial support to make God's plan for me a reality. Any donation is appreciated. What is most appreciated is a monthly commitment for the two year period while I am involved in this ministry. The process is fast, easy and secure. You will be in my prayers as I continue this beautiful journey in fulfilling God's call in my life. 

If you would prefer to write a check, please make it payable to Life Teen with my name written in the memo line and send to
