Hey! My name's Dana & I'm a FOCUS missionary.

Where I serve

I am currently serving as a FOCUS missionary at the University of Nebraska Omaha!  I was born and raised in this wonderful state and am happy to have the opportunity to serve here, too. :) 

My Story

When I think of my personal conversion story, sometimes it's hard for me to put into words what God has truly done in my life.  I think Ephesians 2:1-5 sums it up pretty well.

"In the past you were spiritually dead because of your disobedience and sins. At that time you followed the world’s evil way; you obeyed the ruler of the spiritual powers in space, the spirit who now controls the people who disobey God. Actually all of us were like them and lived according to our natural desires, doing whatever suited the wishes of our own bodies and minds... But God’s mercy is so abundant, and his love for us is so great, that while we were spiritually dead in our disobedience, he brought us to life with Christ. It is by God’s grace that you have been saved."

I am incredibly thankful that I am able to say that the abundant mercy and grace from the Lord that is talked about in these verses absolutely transformed my life my junior year of college, and continues to do so every day.  After almost three years of being immersed in the typical college culture, I finally felt moved to give Christ the opportunity to reach me by attending some events put on by FOCUS, and am so blessed to have experienced His presence in an incredibly profound way.   I couldn't forget the overwhelming love and grace he poured out on me in my brokenness, and the love and influence of some incredible FOCUS missionaries helped me to consistently pursue Jesus and make my faith a priority.  Throughout this journey, I could feel God calling me to share this incredible truth and love with others in a special way, which led me to where I am today!  As a missionary, there is nothing I want more than for God's people to know him, love him, and have a true and intimate relationship with Him. 

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. It is such a blessing to be able to invite people into this mission with me; my job as a missionary would be impossible without your support and prayers! 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.

"Some give by going, others go by giving. Without both, there would be no mission."
