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

Where I serve

After four years as a student at Western Kentucky University, by Divine Providence I have been placed at Murray State University; Shoes Up!! I am excited to walk with the students at this campus in my home state alongside an awesome team of fellow FOCUS missionaries!

My Story

My first encounter with FOCUS missionaries was at my Alma Mater, Western Kentucky (Go Tops!) during my sophomore year. I experienced a profound conversion to Christ and His Church through the invitation of a close relative over the winter break of that year and immediately sought out the Catholic community on campus upon returning for my second semester. The guidance of a particular missionary, Anthony, and his encouragement into a deeper, more prayerful life in Christ led me to walking with fellow students on their personal journeys in discipleship. The more I became involved in the campus ministry at WKU, the more I realized I desired to commit my life in service to Jesus. In my Senior year, He placed a particular desire on my heart to interview with FOCUS. By the time I was offered a position, I knew that I was being called to say yes. I am excited to begin my first year serving at Murray State!

Your Impact

It is through the wonderful, God-given generosity of mission partners (this could be you!) that I am able to encounter so many amazing souls at Murray State! In order to be fully devoted to bringing the Gospel to students and being with them on their own life in Christ, I rely fully on the support of others. Constantly, I am overjoyed by the outpouring of support from each and every mission partner that says yes to supporting me on this journey. God calls each and every one of us to give of our whole selves to build one another up and to spread the Gospel. Will you support me as part of this call?
