Where we serve

God has called us to serve college students at UCCS (University of Colorado Colorado Springs). We're so excited to be serving students both in our home state and at a sister campus of our alma mater, the University of Colorado Boulder. 

Our Story

From Molli:

I have always had the heart of a missionary and have always desired to bring souls to the merciful love of Christ, but never knew how to do this or what this would look like. When I started my freshman year of college at CU Boulder, I knew I wanted to dive deeper in my relationship with the Lord and learn what it meant to make the faith my own. I encountered the FOCUS missionaries my second day on campus, and immediately knew there was something different about them, something I yearned for! One of these missionaries deeply invested in me - walking with me and teaching me a love for God in prayer and the sacraments, helping me to overcome my sins and struggles, and teaching me of her love for God and love for His people and the mission He has invited us all to be a part of. I discovered that the joy she had that I was so attracted to, came from her love of God and her acceptance of His abundant love for her! After meeting Jesus on a mission trip, in the sacraments, and in prayer, I have had a burning love for the Church and a matured desire to bring my brothers and sisters to the love of the Father, and to run with them to our Heavenly Home!

From Danny:

It was during our time in Fatima, Portugal in the summer of 2016 that I had the most profound encounter with the person of Jesus in the Eucharist, and this was a turning point in my faith. I realized one of two things: either 1) Jesus is truly present and my relationship with him in his Church is worth my life or 2) none of it is true. This realization gave me so much freedom because I found out that I needed to give Jesus a full "yes" in order to follow him. Over the course of my time in college, many "yes's" to the Lord led me to marrying my beautiful bride Molli on May 18, 2019 and now becoming missionaries with FOCUS. Graciously though, God worked on giving me the ability to say "yes" to him through a FOCUS missionary that I met during my freshman year at the University of Colorado Boulder. He invited me into a friendship with himself and taught me how to build my friendship with Jesus which changed my life forever.

We are so excited and honored to be able to serve alongside our teammates at UCCS this year to bring the person of Jesus to students so that He can transform their lives.
