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

Where I serve

Jesus has called me to serve college students as a missionary at the University of Kentucky! You'll typically find me hanging out at the university cafe, the Newman Center, playing Spikeball around campus, praying with students, leading bible studies, going to mass, or at the sports teams' practices and games cheering them on. 

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 found that everyone has a Jesus sized hole in their heart and after a radical reversion to the faith the most abundant resource I had coming out of college was my time. I desire to give that to the students. 

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.
