Thank you for considering a partnership with me to give every international student a chance to say yes to Jesus and come to know Him as their personal Lord and Savior! I am so excited to serve God at Grand Valley State University by being on staff with Bridges International (Cru). I truly believe that reaching international students is one of the critical components to reaching our world for Christ. 

These students are the change makers of our future; they will be the leaders in every segment of society all around the world. They are also at a stage in life where they are trying to figure out who they are and what they believe in. I committed my life to Jesus while in college at Grand Valley. Since then, God has worked in my heart to give me a love for international students there. I am excited to have the opportunity to share the love of Jesus with international students, invite them into a personal relationship with Jesus, build them up in their faith, and encourage them to serve the Lord wholeheartedly throughout their lives.

I would love for you to partner with me! Your investment into this ministry can make an eternal impact in reaching people for Christ throughout the world. Like many other missionary organizations, Bridges has no central funds for paying salaries and ministry expenses. As a Bridges staff, I am responsible for developing a team of financial and prayer partners who are led by God to give funds for my ministry. Would you prayerfully consider joining my ministry partner team with a contribution of $100, $200 or even $300 or any other amount in monthly support? All donations made to Cru are tax deductible.

If you have any questions about giving or how to go about connecting us with others please do not hesitate to contact me. I can be reached on the phone or through email:

Call/text me at 989-657-4737 or send me an email at 

Thank you again for partnering with me as I work to spread the good news of Jesus, advancing God's Kingdom at Grand Valley and throughout the world!

"For 'Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.' But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them? And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That is why the Scriptures say, 'How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring the good news!'"  -Romans 10:13-15
