Favorite Verse: "I will take you from the nations and gather you from all the countries and bring you into your own land. I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean from all your uncleannesses, and from all your idols I will cleanse you. And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirits I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules." Ezekiel 36:24-27
Hobbies: Anything and everything having to do with sports. I coach baseball for a local high school and enjoy participating in athletic activity remotely associated with sports. My friends and I can often be found in a river, lake, or park where we’ll be fishing, playing in the water, or fellowshipping over some friendly competition. My summers are chalked full of the Colorado Rockies either at the stadium or watching their road games from my couch. I also love to travel and see new places; especially anywhere that has water (fresh or salt). Most of all, I just love enjoying the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Colorado with my friends and family.
My favorite experience as a student: I was privileged to be a part of CCU2theWorld and traveled to both Scotland, when I was a junior, and Costa Rica, when I was a senior. I was blessed to be welcomed into communities and cultures far different from what I was used to. In Scotland we partnered with a local parish ministered to the city’s youth. While in Costa Rica we partnered with a foundation ministering to women affected by human trafficking. The relationships I was able to build with the youth in Scotland and women in Costa Rica are priceless and I will never forget them. Being willing to serve others, and the humility that I learned in the process, is continually in the forefront of my mind.
