Why did you become a seminarian?

The decision to enter seminary is a deeper search to allow God to show me if He wants me to be His priest. I love Jesus and want what He wants for my life. I believe it is in this where I will have the greatest impact for Him and His Church, and find the most fulfillment.

Before you entered the seminary, what were you doing?

I served three years as a FOCUS missionary, one year at Benedictine College and two years as the team director at Missouri State University.
