U of M Campus Staff &
Downtown Women’s Area Director

Ann came into college a believer and got involved with Campus Outreach her freshman year. As a student she started feeling the need for students on her campus to be reached with the good news of Christ. She was headed towards a career in acting but towards the end of college felt called to change her plans and work full time with Campus Outreach. She joined staff and started at St. Thomas in spring of 2012.

Meanwhile, Nirmal was finishing up his freshman year at the U of M. Nirmal also entered college a believer, but through involvement with Campus Outreach felt a deeper joy in his salvation and developed a burden for making Christ known throughout the whole world. Late in his college career, he felt the Lord tugging on his heart to join Campus Outreach as staff, where he would be able to develop visionaries and laborers who would advance the kingdom all over the world. He began raising support to join the U of M team as Campus Staff beginning the fall of 2015.

That same year, after three and a half years on staff at St. Thomas, Ann transferred to the U of M as Women’s Director. They became fast friends on the staff team together, started dating in April 2016 and were married in December of the same year. They’ve been ministering together on the U of M campus since.
