Where I serve

As I enter my fourth year with FOCUS, I am excited and blessed to be serving my second year on the Recruitment Team.  In this role, I am able to serve applicants and missionaries around the nation. My team works tirelessly to recruit the best missionaries for Christ while guiding applicants through their discernment process.  I work from home, but I serve the nation.  I recruit through regular phone conversations, campus visits, interview weekends, and large events throughout the year. I am honored to serve such an important function for this apostolate and have an even greater impact for Jesus Christ and His Church!

My Story

I encountered Christ in a real way during my sophomore year in high school.  However, it wasn’t until college when I was truly equipped to go out and share my faith with others.  I saw the ever-increasing need to share the hope, peace, and joy that Christ gave me with those caught in the darkness and apathy of the typical college experience.  After 2 years of serving FOCUS on campus, I saw how much greater my impact could be by ensuring that we had more, better missionaries serving Christ throughout the world.

Your Impact

Without recruitment, FOCUS would have no missionaries.  Without missionaries, FOCUS wouldn’t exist.  With your support, FOCUS is able to do God’s work around the country. I truly believe that my family and I are called to this specific mission.  However, we cannot do this without you.  Will you join us on this mission?
