Where I serve

IMG 8875 Hello! My name is Anna and I will be serving as a FOCUS missionary at Troy University in Alabama. Go Trojans!

My Story

As a missionary at Troy, I hope to lead the young adults to a deeper relationship with Christ and to understanding His love for them. Alongside my team, I aim to help the students of Troy build virtuous friendships and a community that will walk with them towards eternal life. Christ worked through the FOCUS missionaries who walked with me at my alma mater, the University of Kentucky, to transform my life into one that is abundant and fulfilling, and I desire to do the same for others.

Your Impact

I have decided to partner with donors to fund my mission. Each mission partner provides me and my team with the means necessary to carry out evangelization on Troy’s campus. They ensure that no boundaries are between the students and their encounter with Christ by allowing us to pay for food, events, and other formative experiences for our students. I am so greatly appreciative of every person who is a part of my mission support team, both monetarily and through prayers!
