St. Louis University & Webster University
We relentlessly resolve to advance the kingdom of God by making disciples of all people for the glory of God.
We do this by seeing college students connect to GOD, create COMMUNITY on the college campus, and unleash college students on MISSION.
I came to Saint Louis to reach college students in 2008 as part of a partnership between the Missouri Baptist Convention and First Baptist Church of Arnold after having served six years as a youth pastor in Southeast Missouri. When I was a youth pastor, I became concerned about my students struggling in their Christian walk after they graduated from high school. Through that God laid a burden on my heart for the college campus as one of the greatest mission fields in the U.S.
I love the city of St. Louis and a major part of the culture of this city is its universities. I love the diversity of the campuses and I enjoy being a part of helping students follow Jesus with passion.
I am a huge St. Louis Cardinals fan!
My heart is to see a collegiate-focused church be planted in the heart of the city that would see students reached and then equipped to do life in St. Louis impacting it with the gospel!
Our ministry has multiple ways a student can connect – through one-one-discipleship/mentoring relationships, community groups, worship gatherings, and missions in St. Louis and around the world.
