The entire Collin staff will work together at all three campuses.
Garrett is husband to an amazing wife, Erika, and dad to a sweet chunky baby, Jack. In addition to ministry he also works as a professor of sociology at Collin College. He has a passion for woodworking, sports, and writing. He finds campus ministry deeply rewarding and plans to stay in it his whole life.
Raised on the streets of Garland and transported to the dirt roads of Denton, Cody is completely bewildered that he’s a campus missionary. Despite having a buddy tattoo a cross on his fingers in high school, involvement in the church was never on Cody’s radar, nor was common sense apparently. Then things changed in 2010 when a young man’s humbled heart met a Christ-obedient community called FOCUS. He received abundant love from his mentors, and pledged to not be stingy with the excess. He’s committed to building God’s kingdom through the college campus. Also, he loves his mom a lot.

Danielle graduated from UTD twice and began working as a Speech-Language Pathologist, which she still does half-time. She was an intern at UNT before joining their staff. She enjoys long walks on the beach, playing with her cat, and folding people’s laundry. She loves doing ministry with college students because of their enthusiasm and passion!
Pedro was born in a tiny town in Mexico and moved to America at the age of 6. It took 3 years of bilingual classes for him to learn English, and now he can’t stop talking about how much he loves college students and ministry. He got a degree in Speech Pathology/Audiology from UNT after spending two years at Collin College. He can be found hanging out at Whole Foods, in a park on a hammock, or raiding your grandfather’s closet for cardigans. He’s excited about being back at Collin where the Lord first gave him insight into the importance of being an ambassador of the Kingdom.
Sam graduated UNT with a double major in English and Technical Communications. Along with switching her major, Sam continually changed her mind about God during her first two years of college. Thankfully, after much conversation, love, and pursuit, Sam eagerly gave her life over to Him. Along with meeting with students, Sam can often be found hanging out with dogs, spending her days at Target, or screaming show tunes. She’s excited and grateful that she gets to take this year to further the Kingdom of God at Collin College.
Alex grew up in Plano and graduated from Plano East in 2014. At the time, he didn’t want to go to Collin; UNT was away from home and sounded way cooler. He did eventually transfer out to Denton, and now leaves with a bachelors degree in Psychology, many meaningful friendships, and a newfound desire to go to Collin because of his vision for God’s work there. He loves dogs, toddlers, goats, trees, and no room for cream or sugar in his coffee.
