Where I serve

Hello! My name is Briana Koon. God has called me to serve with FOCUS, Fellowship of Catholic University Students. FOCUS is a college outreach ministry seeking to inspire and equip a generation of college students. Through this organization we help students to purse a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and His church, and bring others into it. I will be serving as a first year missionary on the campus of Indiana University. I am excited to dive into the lives of students on campus and help them gain understanding and love for our savior. 

My Story

Before transferring to Wright State University my sophomore year, I had always been pretty lukewarm about my faith. Although I was raised Catholic, there were many teachings of the faith that I thought I disagreed with and therefore became indifferent to any religion. Once God paved the way for me to transfer colleges, I met the FOCUS missionaries who were serving on my campus. This was the turning point in my spiritual life. I began to not only learn about my faith with these missionaries, but I actually wanted to grow. Being a dance major I struggled to see how dance and Jesus could correlate. God put a FOCUS missionary into my life who was also a dancer and she taught me the beauty in the art. Dance then became another way for me to glorify the Lord. Through the Church, genuine friendships, bible studies, mission trips, and the gift of dance, my heart had been set on fire for Jesus.

Your Impact

"Some Give By Going, Others Go By Giving" - Mother Teresa

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. It is through the generosity of those who give that I am able to become radically available to the lives on campus. I am excited to share this mission with those who feel called to support. 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.
