Hello! My name is John and I'm a FOCUS Missionary!

Where I serve

I am a member of the Missions team. This is a department of FOCUS that facilitates mission trips around the world. Students who participate in these mission trips have the unique opportunity to experience life-changing encounters with the poor of this world. My team gives young people the chance to get outside of their comfort zones, and come to meet Jesus through service and cultural immersion. What a blessing!  

My Story

I graduated from Ave Maria University in 2018 with a degree in Accounting. Through college, I was heavily involved with FOCUS, participating in bible studies, discipleship, attending annual conferences, traveling abroad on pilgrimage, etc. A couple of FOCUS missionaries in particular played a monumental role in my recognition of the importance and beauty of living a devout faith. The formation and direction that I received from FOCUS has changed my life forever.

After graduating, I began working as an Accountant in Naples, Florida, pursuing my CPA certification. As time went on, I began to realize that I was not created to be an accountant. God made each person with a set of skills and talents, and He calls us to use those to the best of our ability. I began praying, asking the Lord what he made me for, and He put FOCUS on my heart. He asked me to lead souls to Him, and I accepted. Shortly after, I received the opportunity to be a part of the Missions Team, and here we are. 

FOCUS has changed my life, and I am so excited to be a part of this organization. My goal is to help bring others into a relationship with Christ and to get them to Heaven. This begins with meeting students where they are, inviting them to share in this mission, changing the standards that our culture has set in their minds, and ultimately calling them to say "yes" to God and his specific mission for their lives. We are in the midst of a spiritual war, and we need warriors. Let's go get them.  

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.
