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

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students. I can be found amidst the hustle and bustle of the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology! It's been an adventure these past few years as a missionary, and I can't wait to see what the future holds. The Lord has shown me that He has made me His own, and thus, I have a pretty cool story. If you would like to hear more, you can call, text, or email if you want to reach me. I would love to talk more and hear your story, too!

My Story

Growing up as a cradle Catholic, I knew from early on that I was called to be a saint. But like many kids growing up Catholic meant just a lot of "head knowledge" of God, His Church, and how much we are loved. Though I wouldn't trade my upbringing for the world, there was still something missing. 

I couldn't tell you a specific time, day, month or even year when I first encountered Jesus (besides Baptism of course, but I don't remember that!). Like many Christians, Jesus has been working on my heart for a long time and my conversion was and is very gradual. Much of the tipping point in my reversion is accredited to all those in college who invited me to go deeper in my faith and to share it with others. I've been blessed to have more "heart knowledge" of God than ever before. I personally know of His redeeming love for me and all His beloved sons and daughters!

Now, I'm taking all that I have learned and experienced from grade school, college, FOCUS's training and three years on campus, and I am able to serve in the great state of South Dakota! I am serving a fourth year as a full-time missionary at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology (SDSM&T) in Rapid City, SD. Praise the Lord!

As a missionary I  have the privilege of:
-leading Bible studies
-leading women in one-on-one mentoring (discipleship) to inspire and equip them for life-long Catholic mission
-outreaching to the students and inviting them to be part of the Catholic community, experiencing the love of Christ and authentic friendship
-working particularly this year in leading my three teammates as Team Director!

In my own heart, God has allowed me the grace to know and love Him and His Church, now I am being called every day to serve those around me through the mission of FOCUS. I want to help raise up this generation's saints, to grow with them toward Christ!

Being a witness to Christ requires an ongoing relationship with Jesus. This means that our ministry is centered on prayer. Please feel free to contact me with any prayer intentions!

Yours in Christ through Mary,

Megan

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.
