Where we serve

We are so excited to be back in our home state as we serve at the University of Nebraska-Kearney! Kearney is a mid-sized state school in central Nebraska.  Some of our favorite things about our campus are the small-town community, our FOCUS teammates, and our awesome chaplain!

Our Story

We were both raised in Catholic homes in Nebraska.  Having not grasped the gospel growing up, we were first evangelized by an evangelical group in high school.  In his first year at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln, Nick encountered a FOCUS missionary named Luke.  Through Luke's investment in discipling Nick, Nick grew greatly in his Catholic faith, falling in love with the Eucharist especially.  At Saint Louis University, Sarah continued to grow in relationship with Jesus through a bible study on campus.  It was during our dating relationship that Sarah was first introduced to the beauty of knowing Jesus through the sacraments.  We are on mission because our lives were changed through the investment of missionaries on our college campuses and out of a desire to show our students the truth, beauty and goodness available to them through relationship with Jesus and the sacraments.

Your Impact

  When we answered the call to join FOCUS, as full-time missionaries, we made the decision to partner spiritually and financially with others to make this mission possible. We've been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with us in many ways up to this point. If you are interested in partnering with us, please let us know the best way to reach you and we will schedule an appointment. We would be honored to share this mission with you!
