Hey y'all! My name's Kathryn. I'm a FOCUS missionary.

Where I serve

After graduating from University of Louisiana at Lafayette in December 2020, I joined staff as a missionary at Auburn University in Alabama. War Eagle!! I am humbled by the Lord's invitation to serve on mission, and I cannot wait to share the truth that these students are seen, known, and loved by a generous Father. 

My Story

My mission on a college campus is to form lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ. I want to lead students to Jesus, so He can reveal His thirst and begin to speak truth into their identities. 

I grew up in Central Louisiana and was born and raised Catholic. I attended Catholic schools, received my sacraments, and was involved in youth groups and campus ministry. However, I struggled a lot with my identity. In high school I wanted to be seen, known, and loved in extracurriculars. In college, I put all my identity in Greek life. It wasn't until a missionary invited me to a FOCUS conference in Phoenix, AZ that I discovered deep inside the Lord's thirst for me and who He was calling me to be for Him. 

Since then, FOCUS has helped me live confidently as the person I know He is calling me to be for Him. Through His healing, I can confidently use my gifts and talents. Through His companionship, I am learning how to be an authentic friend and walk with others in discipleship. Through His love, I am learning how to will the good and sanctity of others, and I’ve now have the opportunity to do this as a full-time missionary!

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.
