Brian Couri

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

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at the University of Passau, in Germany. When I am not leading bible study’s you can usually find me hanging out in the student center, meeting students on campus, or getting some exercise in the student REC center.  When the weather permits I also enjoy playing Spikeball and soccer on campus where I have had amazing opportunities to meet students on campus!

My Story

Growing up I knew a lot about Jesus but I never really had a personal relationship with Him. I went to Mass on Sundays and prayed at night but that was it. Coming up to college I was really looking for something more. For the first year and a half of my college career I bounced around from church to church searching for that something more , but it wasn t until the end of my sophomore year that I found where God was calling me. That place was the Catholic Church, and thanks to Joe, a FOCUS missionary, I was able to find my way home. I am so grateful for Joe s willingness and excitement to bring the Gospel to me. Without God working through Joe and FOCUS I don t know where I would be today.

That is why I have decided to become a FOCUS missionary, to be a bold witness for those who have not yet come to truly know Christ in their lives. There are so many college students that miss out on having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and it s because no one has been there to tell them about Jesus and His love for them!

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.

Your support will allow me to

-Lead bible studies
-Help students encounter Jesus Christ
-Help men become true and authentic leaders
-Help raise the future leaders of the Church

If you have any questions or prayer intentions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
