Ashley Smith

Hey! My name’s Ashley, and I’m a FOCUS missionary.

Where I serve

I am so excited that God has called me to serve college students at Vanderbilt in Nashville, TN.

My Story

After a hard first year in college, I met an awesome FOCUS missionary who invited me into her life, shared authentic friendship with me, and helped guide me towards a relationship with Jesus. As a missionary, my greatest desire is to walk with college women like myself who want the life giving message of the Gospel. My life was changed through the witness and love of a FOCUS missionary who led me to Jesus. I am eagerly anticipating arriving on campus this year to love other students well and journey with them through the messiness and struggle of college life, inviting them into friendship and a relationship with Christ.

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 who have journeyed 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 and I will schedule an appointment. I’d be honored to share this mission with you. Roll Tide! And Anchor Down!
