Hello! I’m Gus, and I’m blessed to serve as a FOCUS Missionary!

Where I serve

I currently serve at West Chester University of Pennsylvania, both as a student finishing my B.A. in Political Science and as a missionary with FOCUS!

My Story

Throughout my entire life, I’ve been motivated to explore what objective truth and reality are. However, I often found myself placing my identity in things that simply didn’t fulfill me-things that, had they been taken away, would’ve given me no foundation to stand on. During my sophomore year of college, I found the truth and the identity I was looking and longing for.

Thanks to the presence of FOCUS on my campus, I was able to discover the church that Jesus Christ Himself founded here on earth; given to humanity as a gift and a means to reconcile the broken relationship between God and man. I had been running away from the idea of Catholicism for so many years, but careful discernment, exploration, support from genuine friends, and an unmeasurable amount of grace led me to join the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church!

I have become convinced that there is no greater truth worth sharing with people, and I truly believe in the mission of FOCUS to evangelize and make disciples of all nations.

Your Impact

FOCUS provides its missionaries the opportunity to build a team of supporters and invite them to be on mission with us. Your support provides resources for us to fulfill Christ’s commission to make disciples! There is nothing on earth that I am more passionate about sharing, and I would love to invite you to join me on this mission!
