Hey! My name’s Lex. I’m a FOCUS missionary at Iowa State University!

Where I serve

I will be returning to Iowa State University for a second year! It is a vibrant campus with a beautifully growing Catholic presence. I am so excited to be diving deeper in to faith with the students I have gotten to go on mission with this upcoming year, and I cannot wait to see the Lord works in their and my team’s lives!

My Story

If you are wondering how a girl went from nearly leaving the faith at the start of college to becoming a Catholic missionary, come find me; I’d love to share more of my story and get to hear about yours. 🙂

Have you ever been in a friendship that you could describe as true, authentic and vulnerable? I couldn’t until I came to college. It was there that I had encountered a FOCUS missionary that genuinely wanted to become my friend and introduce me to Christ. Jesus kind of took the lead from there and once I encountered Him, there was no going back. I spent the rest of my college career making authentic friends who I could very easily call family and spent time getting to know Jesus.  This lead me to taking my next step in faith of becoming a missionary.

Following the model that Jesus lead with of investing in a few and those few people going on to change the world, I look forward to continue to walk with a few women who together we can make an impact one soul at a time on the college campus.

Your Impact

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 to journey 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 by contacting me through my email at [email protected], and I will schedule an appointment. I’d be honored to share this mission with you!
