Where I serve

Hello everyone! My name is Todd Schmidt, and I am a second-year missionary with FOCUS, the Fellowship of Catholic University Students. I have the great opportunity to spend this upcoming year serving on a team of missionaries at the University of Kentucky in Lexington. I am very excited at this opportunity to grow closer to Our Lord and to invite others to do the same. As I embark upon the great adventure of being a full-time missionary to the students at Kentucky, please know of my prayers for you and my deep gratitude for all you have done for me. God bless you!

My campus as a second year missionary: I am looking forward to serving at the University of Kentucky this fall!

A highlight from my first year on staff: serving with the Missionaries of the Poor for a week in Haiti alongside a fantastic group of 15 college students during their spring break!

My Story

Originally from a small town in Iowa, I left home for a 4-year college much like any other 18 year old: unsure of where life would take me.  After a series of events my freshman year of college, I was led through FOCUS to being introduced to a person who changed my life forever: Jesus Christ.  My next three years of school took me to exciting new places, and I was blessed with incredible friendships and adventures, including living two months in the middle of the Rocky Mountain wilderness, going to the seminary, experiencing serving the poorest of the poor in Kingston, Jamaica, and being able to live in Rome, Italy for four months.  Now, I have decided to answer the call to be a missionary on the college campus and to help lead others to encountering God and embarking upon a lifelong journey of grace, excitement, peace, and blessings!

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 the most amazing people who have journeyed 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.

FOCUS now has more than 550 missionaries on 125 college campuses. Thank you for your continued support and prayers for this vital mission!
