Ashlyn Dunn

Hey! My name’s Ashlyn. I’m a FOCUS missionary.

Where I serve

I serve as a Regional Director for FOCUS’ North Area. In this role, I guide our Team Directors in leading the Little Way of Evangelization at our University of Wisconsin System campuses (Madison, La Crosse, Eau Claire, Stevens Point, Oshkosh, and Platteville) and Loras College in Dubuque, IA.

My Story

Although I grew up in a Catholic household, I experienced my first encounter with Jesus Christ during Holy Week 2009. My life was forever changed by the experience and I spent the next year preparing to receive my Confirmation through RCIA at Our Lady of Fatima in Lakewood, CO. Through this experience I began being formed by the Holy Spirit, growing in my knowledge of the Church and in love for Her head, Jesus Christ.

It was not, however, until my sophomore year at Colorado State University through my involvement with FOCUS that I realized the Church s vital need for evangelization. 

After five years working on college campuses, I am more convicted than ever that my purpose in life is to help others discover who they are and what they were made for.  As a Regional Director, I work as a mentor-manager to our Team Directors, guiding them to implement and pioneer best practices for on-campus evangelization. It is so clear that on this path I will be able to continue (perhaps even more radically than ever before) giving my life as a gift to others. I am so grateful.

Your Impact

This mission wouldn’t be possible without people like you. We are all called to make disciples of all nations. Although we all have different talents and callings that bring us to various endeavors in life, we must all fulfill the mission in the way God allows us. With your financial support and prayers, you can be directly involved in fulfilling the Great Commission–you can join with me in changing the lives of the future leaders of the world on college campuses. Together we can change the world for Christ and His Church!
