Where I serve
day, I am more convicted of students' hungering need to be loved.
Although I am no longer on campus, my role is integral to the
mission. Through identifying and developing missionaries -- helping them be
the person God is calling them to be and pursue a life of excellence --
my job supports the growth of the organization and allows us to be arms
reaching out inviting others in on college campuses.
Upon going to college, I was in search of two things: growth in my faith
and an understanding of the Catholic Church. Being set on fire through
a Protestant Sports camp, I had come to a point where I wanted to
either own my Catholic roots or leave the Church. On move-in day at the
University of Illinois, a FOCUS missionary asked me to join a Bible
study. I didn’t even know Catholics read the Bible! Bible study
became the highlight of my every week, and the girls in the study
quickly became my best friends. The missionaries were filled with such
contagious joy that I found myself wanting to be around them all the
Through my involvement with FOCUS my life was transformed,
and I witnessed deep conversion in the lives of those close to me. I
knew God was calling me to serve full time as a missionary as my
passions aligned perfectly with the job-description: meeting new
people, heart to heart conversations, authentic friendship, adventure,
and sharing my faith. I truly have the best job in the world!
Although my role has changed in moving to the Denver Support Center, mission is still the heart of what I do. My time on campus helps me know the necessity of my job and the importance of quality leadership. Everything we do at the Denver Support Center, is to support the mission on campus and evangelization of the entire world.
Please join me in changing the world for Christ. Your generosity will be blessed a hundredfold, and we would not be fruitful without your sacrifices and the anointing of the Holy Spirit. It is an honor to partner with you in this mission.
