Hi, my name's Danielle! I serve as a FOCUS missionary.

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at UCLA, the University of California, Los Angeles. I'm filled with gratitude and courage as I respond to the call to serve in my home region of Southern California, which is truly mission territory in need of Christ's healing love.

My Story

Mother Teresa once said that “the spiritual poverty of the western world is much greater than the physical poverty of our people” and what the west is missing is “a living relationship with God.” I have realized the truth of Mother Teresa’s words in my own life and on the college campus. At my university, I witnessed intense spiritual poverty, severe loneliness, and young people who are lost and searching for meaning. Only a living relationship with Jesus can heal this spiritual poverty and death on our college campuses. My own life has been transformed by Jesus, and I want nothing more than to bring this healing love to students and lead them to the fullness of life with Christ. In His ministry on earth, Jesus took on our humanity, encountered us where we were, invested deeply in a few, and taught them to do the same for others. I look to Jesus’ own example as the best method of reaching the world while making sure each person is cared for and loved.

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 in this mission. I trust that God will provide through the generous hearts of people who will journey 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 so I can share with students the greatest gift I have ever received: God’s healing love and the fullness of life with Christ.
