Where I serve

I will be serving at Ohio Northern University which is located in Ada, Ohio. Our team of four will be the first FOCUS missionaries on campus! This is an incredibly exciting opportunity because we have the chance to build community in our first year. We know the students are excited to meet us!

My Story

When I got to Ball State University, I was faced with a decision; do I want to continue living my faith, or is it not worth it?

My freshman year of college I wrestled with the reality that I had been ignoring my Catholic faith. I did the necessary things, but I kept God at a distance. During freshman year, a FOCUS missionary intentionally invited me to a Bible study. This invitation led me to authentic relationship and committing to my faith. I was alone and someone intentionally loved me. This kickstarted a desire for greater intimacy with God through prayer and the sacraments. He had been waiting for me the whole time. His love asks of us a response, and this love led me to become a FOCUS missionary.

Your Impact

HEY! You found the right page! And if this is not the one you were looking for, you still found the right page!

To get serious,

Thank you for saying yes to going on mission with me. I really appreciate you committing to the unknown. Your sacrifice will not go unnoticed as God impacts Ohio Northern this year. Your support will help college students understand the eternal love the Father has for them. And I pray it does the same for you!
