Allison Koller

Hi! My name is Allison, and I’m a FOCUS missionary!

Where I serve

I am excited to be a first year missionary at Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla, MO! Go Miners!

My Story

Growing up, I attended Mass with my family every Sunday, but never went deeper or desired more.  After putting my identity into academics, extra curriculars, and friends at the beginning of college, I was left unfulfilled.

It was through the investment of a FOCUS missionary at the University of Missouri that I learned how to pray, and realized it was possible to truly fall in love with Him.  Through this deeper encounter and personal relationship with Him, my identity shifted away from the world and towards Him as His Beloved Daughter.

Since encountering the Lord in this way, my life has been changed; I have experienced greater love, joy, and fullness of life.  For this reason, I want everyone to know Him, especially students at Missouri S&T.  In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few.  I look to Jesus own example to find the best method of reaching the world.

“It is Jesus that you seek when you dream of happiness; He is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you; He is the beauty to which you are so attracted.” – Saint Pope John Paul II

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 would love for you to join me!  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.
