Where we serve

Over the past few years, we have had the pleasure of serving on campus in California and Kentucky. This year we are blessed to be beginning our second year at Iowa State University! John will be serving on campus as the Team Director, and Kylie will be working with the National Recruitment Team. 

Our Story

As missionaries, our greatest desire is to lead students to Christ. Our lives have been transformed by the love of Christ and we want nothing more than to bring this joy to others. 

John's Story...By my junior year in college, I had lost all faith and hope in even the idea of God. I wasn't just atheist and openly persecuting anyone with a belief; I was broken and embellishing the culture of my campus. I encountered a genuine love. This love, this truth, changed me. A God present with his people; openly sharing love with the abandoned, openly sharing love with the hurt and broken, and openly welcoming all of us to a greater, true fulfillment in life. This is what I desire to share with others.

Kylie's Story...As a freshmen in college at South Dakota State University, I encountered the Lord in a radical way. The God who seemed so distant from me filled my heart with love during adoration. I had never encountered anything more real in my life, and I was forever changed. The more I came to know Him, the more I desired to serve Him. 

Your Impact

When we answered the call to join FOCUS, we made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help us through this mission. We've been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with us as we serve on campus! 

Mother Teresa once said, "Some give by giving, and others give by going." We invite you to ask the Lord if He is calling you to give to this mission with your prayers and support.

We look forward to answering your questions and receiving your prayer intentions. Please feel free to call or email us at [email protected] or [email protected]

Know, Love and Serve God

We encounter God in an intimate relationship through daily prayer, the sacraments and the Scriptures.

Build Virtuous Friendships

We teach students how to share the gospel, who in turn teach other students how to pass it on …
