Where I serve

God has called us to serve on the Varsity Catholic national team at the Support Center here in Denver! This is Keegan's third year with FOCUS, working as a Varsity Catholic missionary for two years and now on the national team. On the national team I work with Varsity Catholic missionaries all over the country. Working with these men on campus who are reaching out to athletes. The life of a student-athlete is rigorous and does not leave much room for Christ . My prayer is that these men continue to look to Christ for strength in their challenges and successes in athletics and beyond!

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. I heard Jesus' call in my life multiple times but never knew where to turn. After years of avoiding God's call with a life of sin, I found Him in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Throughout a tough college career, I came to the realization that young men need more male leaders to walk with them in their faith journey. 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. I look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world. In college athletics is where I felt a great call to serve Jesus Christ and His Church. It was the beginning of where I met the Person of Jesus Christ! I hope to share my story and inspire others to share their encounter with Jesus and bring hope and joy to souls on campus!

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.

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