Where we serve

God has called us to serve for another year the college athletes at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh! We spend our days at the Newman Center, practice fields/courts, and around campus! We both are super excited to spend our second year of marriage serving the Lord together in this way! Come find either of us - we would love to talk to you!!

Meet Team Oshkosh 2022-23; Pat, Sarah, Jackie, Alli, and Ethan!

Our Story

Our stories are simple, but the impact was tremendous.

We both were raised in great Catholic families, one state apart. Fast forward to college, and we both realized that while we had known about God, we didn't actually know Him personally. We both attended a FOCUS national conference with our respective schools, and had profound encounters with God in the Eucharist. The same God who died 2,000 years ago wanted to know us personally - and not just us, but everyone else at the conference too! We were so amazed that there were so many other people our age who wanted to live their lives for Christ! 

We ended up each leading a Bible Study specifically for our teammates; After her senior year, Alli became a FOCUS missionary! She was placed at Loras College, where we met when Ethan was a senior. After a year of being in the workforce, Ethan realized that he was being called to give up the security of a 9 to 5 and to join Alli on mission! We got married on May 7th, 2021, and we couldn’t be more excited to be serving students the the Lord together!!

Your Impact

When we said "Yes" to join FOCUS, we both made the decision to rely 100% on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help us on this mission. It is because of this complete reliance in monthly support that we are able to be entirely free to serve the students without reservations. 

We are continually astounded by the generosity poured out to us by our family and friends - we been blessed with the most amazing people as mission partners!! If you are interested in becoming a partner on this mission with us, please let us know of the best way to reach you and we will schedule an appointment. We are truly honored to share this mission with you!!
