Where I serve

Hi! I'm Jessica - recent college grad and missionary at Eastern Michigan University. The Lord has called me to an adventure unlike any other. This adventure has led me to serve college students with FOCUS! Please feel free to look around, learn a bit more about me and my mission, and discover how you can join me on my mission for Christ! 

My Story

In college, I couldn't shake the feeling I was made for something more than just this world. After many years spent chasing the dreams I had for myself, only to find fleeting satisfaction upon achieving them, I was fed up. I felt hopeless. The everlasting joy and truly abundant life I longed for seemed nowhere to be found - that is, until I met FOCUS missionaries. It is because of their friendship that I was able to see the Gospel come alive consistently for the first time in my day-to-day life, thus helping me come alive, too. Living fully alive is a gift Jesus wants to give each and every person. As his missionary, I desire to share this gift with the world - particularly college students - so they may know what it means to "have life and have it more abundantly." (Jn. 10:10)

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to serve Jesus faithfully and trust him radically. I get the opportunity to do this by inviting others to join me in mission through financial and spiritual support.  I've been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus. If you are interested in joining me to change the tide of our culture, I would be honored to meet you and share more about the work God has called me to do.
