Hey y’all! My name is Bri, and I’m a FOCUS missionary at the University of Kansas!

“It is Jesus in fact that you seek when you dream of happiness; He is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you…” – St. John Paul II

Where I serve

God has called me to serve at the University of Kansas starting in August! Rock Chalk baby!! I’m super excited to be on campus and to be leading students closer to Christ.

My Story

Before I came to know God, I was seeking for happiness in the wrong ways. After having a transformative conversion on a mission trip, I changed my habits to make Jesus the center of my life and surrounded myself with good community to help me strive towards God every day.

After growing in friendship with the FOCUS missionaries on campus, I admired the way they lived and saw a difference from the way they were living and the way the world was living. Eventually, God made it very clear that becoming a missionary was on my heart. Being friends with the FOCUS missionaries and being a student involved in FOCUS, helped me to understand the purpose of the mission. Overtime, this mission has helped me to become more of who I am by growing closer to God, and I want to be able to do the same for those college students who are searching for something more. 

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. Mother Teresa ounce said, “Some go to give to the mission; others give to go on the 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!!
