Hey! My name's Dorian. I'm a FOCUS missionary.

Where I serve

After spending my first year as a missionary at the University of Oklahoma, the Lord saw fit that I should be moved to the role of team director at Stephen F Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas. After serving at SFA for two years, I was place at Southern Methodist University! I will continue there as team director for the 2019 school year! While I am physically distant from my family at home, I am continually overwhelmed by the love and joy I receive from my team and the students I serve!

My Story

God spent the first half of my years in college pursuing my heart. As has been the case for much of my life, He led and I followed, sometimes without even knowing it. Through the sacraments, prayer, scripture and the community at the University of Texas, He shepherded me through temptation and the influence of anti-Catholic and anti-Christian teachings and peers. My junior year and onward, I felt an urge to share my reinforced faith with those around me. Coincidentally, I encountered FOCUS this same year and once I felt the call on my heart to join the ranks of the best missionary organization in America (besides the Church, of course), I never looked back!

Your Impact

This mission would not be possible without the spiritual and financial aid of my mission partners. I have the freedom to physically go on the mission but I would not have the ability to do so if it were not for the generous support of my mission partners. If prayer is the engine that moves the mission along, then financial support is the fuel, without which we would not be able to reach the amount of souls we are reaching. If you are interested in joining me on my mission through spiritual and financial support, please send me an email and we can set up a time to discuss the details.

Know, Love and Serve God

We encounter God in an intimate relationship through daily prayer, the sacraments and the Scriptures.
