Where I serve

I serve at the University of South Alabama in Mobile, AL!

My Story

As a student at Baylor University I was able to have deep encounters with Jesus Christ through the friendship and guidance of a FOCUS missionary. He showed me how to grow in my relationship with Jesus through frequent prayer, reading scripture, attending mass every Sunday and daily mass during the week.  I also had the privilege of being apart of a growing community of Catholic college students all with the same desire to grow in their relationship with Jesus. My life was being changed by God through these friendships and new spiritual habits being formed. I began to realize my junior year how great a need there was for people to share with gift of Jesus Christ with others, especially college students. I became a FOCUS missionary to help college students begin and develop a relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church and equip them to go out and share this gift with others! 

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. Your gift allows me to be radically free for the students and grow in friendship with them. It also allows you to be apart of the mission and serve alongside our team. Thank you for taking the time to consider giving and read this small article! You'll be in my daily prayers, please keep our team in your prayers as well!
