Where I serve

The Lord has called me to serve at Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville, MO. I am excited to serve my second year as a missionary here and can not wait to see what the Lord has planned! Go Bearcats!

My Story

I was raised Catholic and attended mass every Sunday with my family, but I would say that I had never truly encountered the person of Jesus Christ. As I was going in to my senior year of college at Northwestern State University I was really questioning whether or not to continue practicing my faith. One day after mass, the FOCUS missionaries introduced themselves and said that they were here to work with the college students. My friends and I were not interested and tried to leave mass without talking to them. They stopped us, however, and had us fill out some questionnaires. I saw one of the missionaries on campus just a few days later. She befriended me and then eventually invited me to attend the SEEK2017 conference. It was at this conference that I encountered the person of Jesus for first time. After this I knew that I needed to not only form an intimate relationship with Him but also share that with others.

My life changed after that conference and that opportunity would not have ever presented itself if it had not been for the FOCUS missionaries. My hope as a missionary is to give others the same opportunities and to walk with them in building a life centered around Christ. 

Your Impact

This mission is not possible without you. I invite you to join me in winning souls over for Christ. I would not be where I am today had it not been for a FOCUS missionary and all of the people that supported her. We are not called to live mission alone but as a community. I would love to be able to share in this mission with you. Thank you so much for your yes to the Lord! May He bless you abundantly for the work you are doing for His kingdom!

Know, Love and Serve God

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

Build Virtuous Friendships

By building genuine friendships, we meet students on a deeper level.

Teach Others to Share Christ

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