Hi! My name is Gina, and I'm a FOCUS missionary.

Where I serve

God has called me to serve the students of Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, Indiana. My teammates and I provide opportunities for students to practice and grow their faith at college alongside the ministry of St. Teresa of Avila Catholic Student Center, located just across the street from campus. I spend my time mentoring students in their faith, leading weekly bible studies, and entering into the day-to-day lives of the women on campus. Reaching and serving athletes through FOCUS' Varsity Catholic ministry is a large component of my outreach at VU. My hope is to help each of the women I meet to realize that their deepest identity is in the God who created them. 

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world. I've been constantly amazed by the different souls I've encountered on campus.

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. I've been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I'd be honored to share this mission with you.
