Where I serve

Hey! I'm Jeremiah and I'm excited to be back serving students at the University of Washington for the fall quarter! I have a pretty cool story about how Jesus changed my life. Come find me and I'd love to share it with you. :)

My Story

Even though I was born and raised Catholic, there were always things that were more important to my life than my faith. Whether it was competitive soccer or my social status in high school or fraternity life and academic success in college, my faith took a backseat while I let other activities drive my life. 

It wasn’t until my sophomore year at the University of Washington (Go Dawgs!) when the COVID quarantines hit that, out of the blue and out of boredom, I decided to start doing the daily readings. Somehow, this led me to finally take the time to actually think, learn more about the Catholic faith, read the scriptures more thoroughly, and pray. The more I did these things, the more I understood the truth of the Catholic faith. When I returned to campus, the FOCUS missionaries at UW helped me further my faith and develop a relationship with God. For the first time in my life, I finally felt comfortable being myself and living for something greater. I finally was able to grasp my identity and where I fit inside this vast world of ours, as a beloved son of God. And it all started with something as small as taking less than five minutes a day for the daily readings. It is incredible to see how God can work with so little! As a FOCUS missionary, I hope to help college students gain the same peace and joy that I received by growing in divine intimacy.

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 the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I'd be honored to share this mission with you.
