Hey! My name's Anna. I'm a FOCUS missionary.

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students, and He chose Kansas University as the place for me to do it. I'm a Kansas girl born and raised, but I must admit Lawrence is a bit of a change from the town my parents live in, with a population of about 1,200 people :)  Come find me and I can give you all sorts of small town Kansas stories! I'm thrilled to welcome a brand new team to campus this year; John-Michael, Jessica, MaryCason, Kelvin, and Emily.  They are like family (and John-Michael and Emily actually will be when they get married in January)!  Come see us, we'd love to meet you. :)

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ, and to help them understand the deep love He has for each and every one of them.  I'm from a non-FOCUS campus in Kansas, and I was first introduced to FOCUS at a conference that they put on called SEEK, in 2015.  It was at that conference that I began my journey in realizing Jesus' love for me, and Jesus hasn't stopped working through my life via FOCUS since that moment.  In the summer of 2016 I went on a FOCUS mission trip to Fatima and Ireland for the month of July.  It was during my time in Fatima that I realized Jesus was calling me to be a FOCUS missionary for Him.  Not only that, He gave me the message that He had specific souls He needed me to help save.  I chose to give Jesus my yes, and I haven't looked back since! 

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 developed my faith; I now pray people will have the courage to become my mission partner, so that, together, we can begin helping young people around the country. 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.  It has never been more important to fight for the souls of our young people.  Together, this is a fight we can win!

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 …
