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

Where I serve

During my five years as a campus missionary, I was able to invite men to ask Jesus what he wanted them to do with their lives after college. Now, I work as the National Recruitment Manager for FOCUS at the support center in Genesee, CO. I help inspire men and women from across the country to become missionaries and change our culture for Jesus Christ. When students say "yes" in this way, we are able to meet more and more students in discipleship and impact their lives and the lives of those they will reach.  

My Story

I grew up in Falls City, NE and attended the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. After graduating, I married my best friend, Beth, and now have three children, Giorgio, Lou and Walt, as well as Theodore who is already in heaven. I became a missionary alongside my wife in 2010 and we now live in the beautiful city of Boulder, CO.  

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. It is a great joy to minister to college students as a family, inviting them into our lives led by Christ. 

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.
