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

Where I serve

For the 2018-2019 school year I will be serving as a FOCUS missionary at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.  I was born and raised in this wonderful state and am happy to have the opportunity to serve here, too.  :-) This is my third year on staff and I'm so excited for what God has in store! 

My Story

I went into college with the attitude that I had four years to embrace the typical "college culture" and needed to make the most of it, but after two and a half years of living according to my own desires, I was left feeling empty and lost.  Thanks to the grace of God, everything changed when I had profound encounters with Jesus through FOCUS events my junior year.  My life has never been the same because of the love and mercy the Lord showered over me at a time when I felt unworthy and overwhelmed by my mistakes.  Moving forward, through the love and influence of some incredible FOCUS missionaries that helped me to consistently pursue Jesus, prayer, and make my faith a priority, God continued to transform me. He showed me true joy, peace, and fulfillment that could never compare to the pleasures I was chasing before, and I simply couldn't keep His life-changing mercy and the truth of the Gospel to myself! He called me to be a FOCUS missionary and it truly has been the best adventure of my life. :-) 

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.
