Hey! My name's Jacob, and I'm a FOCUS missionary.

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas. I will be spending time on campus to meet students wherever they are at in their life. This could include things such as meeting students in the cafeteria, rec center, sidewalks, or other events on campus.  On a deeper level, I will be having one-on-one discipleship with students, as well as Bible studies to dive in to sacred Scripture and hanging out at the St. Mary's Catholic Student Center. I have been consistently pursued by Jesus throughout my life whether I knew it or not, but always out of radical love.  If you would like, I could share it with you so don't hesitate to ask!  If there's any questions I could answer for you or anything I could offer for you in prayer, please let me know. :)

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. My life has been consistently 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. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world. I've been constantly amazed by the gift of people that I encounter on campus.

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 amazing people in my life who deserve an invitation to journey 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.
