Where we serve

God has called us to serve college students at the University of Louisville! You'll typically find me hanging out at the student center, or high-fiving people around campus. I have a pretty cool story about how Jesus has changed my life -- I think you should hear it sometime! Come find me and I'd love to share it with you. :)

Our Story

As missionaries, our greatest desire is to lead all people to Christ. Our lives have been transformed by Jesus, and we want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. 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. We look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world. We've been constantly amazed by the different souls we've encountered on campus.

Your Impact

When we answered the call to join FOCUS, our family made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help us accomplish this mission. We've been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with our family as we serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with us, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. We'd be honored to share this mission with you.
