Danna Knight

1 Thessalonians 2:8 "Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well."

Hello! My name is Danna, I am a fourth-year FOCUS missionary, and here are some fun facts about myself:

I love my family. I drink a cup of tea each morning and every night. I learned patience from my father and carefree wonder from my mother. If you took a microscope to my heart you would see my brothers and my little sister. My favorite activities are thinking, reading, playing cards, and sitting in a coffee shop talking to someone I love. I have a cat named Blu and I like conversations about the meaning of life. I am learning to engage my mind in study, my heart in prayer, and my soul in conversation. I have fallen head over heals in love with Jesus Christ, and I want to share His heart with the world.

Russell, Nolan, Madison, Jessica, and Eddie will be walking alongside me as we reach this campus, and the world, for Jesus Christ.

My Story

When I got to college, I discovered a passion for clean water and to work towards solving the global water crisis. At the same time, I was coming to know God in a way I never had before. Through prayer, the sacraments, and friendships geared towards heaven, I developed a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. He is my Lord, my friend, the lover of my soul, and the source of my joy. My passion for clean water transformed into a passion for Living Water; the striking need to bring everlasting life, in addition to an element of life, to the world. 

Each person in this world has a body, mind, and soul made by the Lord and for the Lord. We are created for a relationship with God, and it is in that relationship that we find the meaning and purpose of life. While we are all made for this, so many people are seeking fulfillment in other things. I look out at our broken world and see a people in dire need of authentic love and friendship. The message of the Gospel meets this need. My mission with FOCUS is to imitate Jesus, specifically in the way He lived as a missionary on earth: engaging people through authentic friendship, forming disciples through sharing life, and commissioning apostles to do the same for others.

Your Impact

Regardless of job title, we are all called to be missionaries; to spread the love of God through our time, talent, and treasure.
