Hey! My name's Kate and I'm a FOCUS missionary at the University of Connecticut!

Where I serve

God has called me to serve my first year at the University of Connecticut. I will be on a team with five other missionaries from the U.S. to collectively and strategically live like Christ and invite others into this difficult yet incredible way of life. See the 2021-2022 UConn team below!

Erinn is entering her third year with FOCUS, Jack is entering his fourth, John and Kaler are entering their second year and I am the only first year on the team!

My Story

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 others to experience this too through my sharing and living out the life-changing message of the Gospel. This is not a dreadful or sorrowful sacrifice that I am grinning and bearing because its 'a good thing to do' but a life-giving and joy filled one and I embrace freely and with zeal. I am passionate about the vision of FOCUS and it has changed my faith and ultimately my life. They are an organization committed to making lifelong disciples for Christ and building the kingdom of God, all supported by the generosity of others. Ask me more about it! 

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 am excited to build up a small team of monthly supporters who desire to be apart of this mission but cannot themselves go. 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. I trust that the Lord has called me into this battlefield and that He will provide for my every need through others. 


This was the moment I found out I was placed at the University of Connecticut! What a joyous day.

Know, Love and Serve God

We encounter God in an intimate relationship through daily prayer, the sacraments and the Scriptures.

Build Virtuous Friendships

By building genuine friendships, we meet students on a deeper level.

Teach Others to Share Christ

We teach students how to share the gospel, who in turn teach other students how to pass it on …
