Where I serve

God has called us to serve college students as campus missionaries at Troy University. We are blessed to serve together along with two other incredible FOCUS missionaries. We will also have an emphasis on reaching out to Greek students.

My Story

Elliot: Christ has transformed our lives through the joy and beauty of His sacrifice and His church. I came to college at Auburn University struggling to deal with a new diagnosis of a chronic illness. As a broken freshman, I was invited into the Auburn Catholic community by a friend from high school. There I was approached by people who truly desired to get to know me, including a FOCUS missionary who invited me into discipleship. He showed me by his friendship that I was worthy of being known and loved, and he used that friendship to lead me into a life of prayer for the first time. Soon after, I had a powerful encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist, where He healed my wounds and taught me that despite my sins and brokenness, He loved me. Through the rest of college, I was steadily convicted that God desires for me to reach others in the same way I had been won for Him. 

Abby: Though the friendship of FOCUS missionaries and discipleship, I was challenged while in college to strive for holiness. I was given a zeal for souls simply by witnessing the passion and desire of FOCUS missionaries to love deeply and authentically. I was encouraged to live my identity as a daughter of Christ before anything else and with that came confidence to share my faith and love for the Lord. In 4 years, I  have seen FOCUS missionaries transform a campus. I have a great passion and zeal for reaching out to those students who, like I was, lukewarm to my relationship with God. I hope to be a tool for the Lord to bring TRUE joy to the hearts of college students who will become our future politicians, teachers, doctors, parents, and clergy. 

We met through the Catholic community at Auburn. From the beginning of our friendship, our shared faith has been at the center. As we continued in college and became more invested in outreach with FOCUS, we both came to see that God was calling us to serve as missionaries. We were particularly encouraged by the example of a married couple who served as FOCUS missionaries at Auburn. As we discovered our vocation to marriage, we knew that God was calling us to share His gospel and the beauty of marriage through our call to be missionaries. We were married on May 20, 2017 and are blessed to begin our marriage through this mission.

Your Impact

When we answered the call to join FOCUS, we made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help us through this mission. We have been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with us during our time in college, and we are excited to meet new supporters and friends for this next journey. If you are interested in partnering with us, please let us know of the best way to reach you and we will schedule an appointment. We would be honored to share this mission with you.
