DOMINIC

My name’s Dominic and I’m a 1st-year Christ in the City missionary fromĀ Arnaudville, LA.

What brought me to Christ in the City

After a busy senior year of highschool, I felt disconnected from my goal and purpose in life. I was unsure of what I wanted to do, and the person I wanted to become. While I was applying to various colleges, nothing struck me as something that would give me the time and space I need to figure out who I want to be. I decided to take a year off between highschool and college to reconnect with my goals and gain momentum for the trying years ahead. I have always loved Colorado and the mountains, so when I heard about a gap year program in Colorado I became interested. As I learned more about Christ in the City’s missionary work and service to the poor, the idea of giving of myself resonated with me as the perfect opportunity to get to know myself. To be able to live in a community of people giving of themselves in a place far from home felt to me like a great chance to rid myself of distractions and be able to learn more about the poor in the world around me. I am really thankful for this opportunity to serve the homeless, live in community and grow in the image and likeness of God.

What I’m looking forward to

I think I am most looking forward to being in a close-knit community of people who genuinely want to give their lives in service. Though I would have to say I am really excited about living in the mountains, and making new friends.

A bit about me

I would describe myself as being a person who likes to try new things and being adventurous. I love doing many outdoor activities and basically any sport but also love to learn about the world around me. My motivation in life is to be the best person and most well-rounded person that I can.
