Grace Klein

If He asks much of you, it is because He knows you can give much.

I’m so glad you’re here. You rock.

Where I serve

I graduated with an engineering degree from the best place in the world, James Madison University, in 2023 (Go Dukes!!!! (begins with God!!)), and now, God has called me to serve college students at Columbia University in NYC! I would be honored to invite you on mission with me in the Big Apple! These students need authentic friendship and joy in the midst of a busy city life at an ivy league college.

My Story

During my college years at James Madison University, I encountered the Lord and grew in relationship with Him. Through FOCUS Bible studies, Summer Projects, and being formed in the faith by FOCUS leaders on campus, I developed authentic friendships that helped me to foster a profound love of God and desire to share the Gospel with everyone I meet. God has placed a real zeal for souls on my heart, and I cannot wait to serve on mission to reap the harvest for Him.

Jesus Christ is the best best friend, and I want to share that with others. He is the one who revealed to me that my identity does not lie in what I study, what I do, who I know, or what I can accomplish, but that I am a beloved daughter of God, first and foremost. As a missionary, my greatest desire is to love the people that God brings into my life and remind them of this true identity.

some friends who I love!

In Ephesians 2:1-2, the Apostle Paul writes that you he made alive, when you were dead through the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world.” My life has not just gone from good to great since encountering the love of God; I have gone from dead to alive because of Jesus and His mercy! Following the course of this world will always leave us wanting more, and I desire to share this simple but profound message with college students to lead them to something more and let them know that: God loves you, and He has a plan for your life that is better than you could have ever imagined.

Your Impact

Some give by going to the missions. Others go by giving to the missions. Without both, there are no missions. 

-Saint Teresa of Calcutta

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 being with me on this mission, hit the button below that says “Support Grace,” 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 of hope with you.
