Where I serve

Hi, I'm Kami! I'm a fourth year missionary/Team Director and Jesus has called me to serve at the United States Coast Guard Academy in New London, CT! You can probably find me walking around base giving "carry on" to the 4/c (freshman), cheering on the sports team, leading bible studies in the student center, or exploring the beauty of New England with my team and cadets! I have a pretty awesome story about how Jesus has changed my life and I'd love to share it with you!

MY TEAM: FOCUS USCGA 2020-2021

L to R: Tanner Hoerter, Sarah Robertson, Marcel Lu, me, and Brianna French!

My Story

I was blessed to grow up in a Catholic home but became extremely lukewarm in my faith when I left to attend George Mason University. Our Lord is so good and He led me to the GMU Catholic Campus Ministry! Through RCIA-Confirmation classes, authentic friendships, mission trips, service teams, and a whole lot of intercessory prayer, I came to fall deeply in love with Jesus Christ and His Church.

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all souls to Christ. Our culture today encourages us to turn in on ourselves but Christ calls us to look up! To “seek the things that are above" (Col 3:1) and teach others to do the same. FOCUS missionaries greatly impacted my life by following Jesus' example. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few and having radical encounters with many.

FOCUS serves at four military academies! Coast Guard, Navy, West Point, & Air Force!

“Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life; and we have believed, and have come to know, that you are the Holy One of God.”  

John 6:68-69

After two incredible years serving at the University of Pittsburgh, I was blessed to move to the Coast Guard Academy as Team Director. This is my second year serving in this role! Being assigned to the Coast Guard Academy was unexpected but has turned out to be such a gift. This servant leadership position allows me to invest primarily in my four teammates as Jesus did with his disciples. I am blessed to serve them through intercessory prayer, intentional mentorship, and joyful sacrifice. Please pray for me that I may lead as a true servant of the Lord!  

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to radically trust Christ and rely totally 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 since I gave my "yes". If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and we can schedule a visit or phone call! I'd be honored to share this mission with you.
