Maddie Smith

Hey! My name's Smith... Maddie Smith. I'm a FOCUS missionary.

Where I serve

I am excited to say that I serve at the United States Naval Academy! 

My Story

In my youth, I strived to prioritize my Catholic faith. Nonetheless, I did not emerge from a life on stage as a dancer nor from my years at university unscathed by the culture. I found myself just as wounded as anyone one else of my generation, hopelessly searching for "bandaids" in the party scene, only to find more hurt. 

Since growing in relationships with FOCUS missionaries, my life has been transformed by the Lord. I want nothing more than to share this joy with others so they too can come to know the healing nature of the Gospel and allow the Lord to pursue their hearts as I have allowed Him to pursue mine! 

I am so excited to share my love of the Lord with others and I know that He will use me in crazy cool ways to build the kingdom!

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to turn away other job opportunities that would have provided me with financial and beneficial security. I consider this a small sacrifice considering how blessed I am to participate in the salvation of souls on college campuses! However, this sacrifice requires that I rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners who willingly donate a small piece of their treasures on a monthly basis. 

“Some give, by going to the missions. Some go by giving to the missions. Without both, there is no mission.” -St. Therese of Lisieux 

You may not be called to serve on college campuses but every human person is called to give of themselves towards the salvation of souls. 

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.
