Where I serve
day, I am more convicted of students' hungering need to be loved. College students search to answer the question, "Where can I find happiness?" By helping students discover their true meaning and purpose, we work to build a culture of life that will have a profound, lasting impact. Each week, I travel to various campuses in the Midwest to help missionaries best respond to the human need for love and recruit top talent to serve as full time Catholic missionaries.
Upon going to college, I was in search of two things: growth in my faith
and an understanding of the Catholic Church. Being set on fire through
a Protestant Sports camp, I had come to a point where I wanted to
either own my Catholic roots or leave the Church. On move-in day at the
University of Illinois, a FOCUS missionary asked me to join a Bible
study. I didn’t even know Catholics read the Bible! Bible study
became the highlight of my every week, and the girls in the study
quickly became my best friends. The missionaries were filled with such
contagious joy that I found myself wanting to be around them all the
Through my involvement with FOCUS my life was transformed,
and I witnessed deep conversion in the lives of those close to me. I
knew God was calling me to serve full time as a missionary as my
passions aligned perfectly with the job-description: meeting new
people, heart to heart conversations, authentic friendship, adventure,
and sharing my faith. I truly have the best job in the world!
Please join me in changing the world for Christ. Your generosity will be blessed a hundredfold, and we would not be fruitful without your sacrifices and the anointing of the Holy Spirit. It is an honor to partner with you in this mission to win souls for all Eternity.
