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

Where I serve

The 2019-2020 year has brought me to West Virginia University (WVU) in Morgantown, WV. I am currently transitioning into my third year as a missionary. My conviction to stay on staff for another year (even digitally during this time of pandemic) has been fueled by Our Lord's Great Commission, given to us in Matthew 28:18-20 "And Jesus came and said to them, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.'” (RSVCE) More news on my upcoming assignment will be shared soon!

My Story

I was reintroduced to Jesus Christ in a new, deeper way through the missionary efforts of a FOCUS missionary. My desire is to share the Good News of the Gospel with other young men on university campuses and to bring them closer to Our Lord.

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 via phone or video conferencing software. I'd be honored to share this mission with you.
