Christine Sarnow

Hello there! My name's Christine. I'm a FOCUS missionary currently serving at our national support center.  My husband, Jacques - who is a firefighter for Aurora, CO - and I live near Denver, CO with our daughter, Faustine, and are delighted to have a pivotal role in changing lives for eternity.

Where I serve

I have served this mission to college students and the Catholic Church for nearly 11 years now.  I served for 4 years on college campuses as a hands on missionary with college students.  Through mentorship, authentic friendship, and Bible studies, I was an instrument for God to work in many students lives.  Knowing many of those students still, I can attest to the impact FOCUS has on these students not just during college but for eternity.

Currently, I oversee our national events at our headquarters, the Denver Support Center.  I work with an amazing team to put on SEEK and SLS, as well as nearly 30 other events annually to serve this great mission.  This past SEEK conference (SEEK2017), we had nearly 13,000 attendees who were impacted by the sacraments, powerful talks, and fellowship.  Through this experience, thousands met our Lord in confession and shared testimonies of a profound encounter with Jesus and His Church.

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all souls to Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel.  I have served this mission for 11 years and counting!  In 2013, I married my wonderful husband and we welcomed our daughter, Faustine, in 2015.  We are humbled and privileged to serve in this capacity and our lives are enriched by it.

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. I've been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I'd be honored to share this mission with you.
