Bryson Brown

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

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at the beautiful University of Maine (Go Black Bears!). You’ll typically find me hanging out at the Newman Center, practicing on my chanting skills, or enjoying the great outdoors. I have a pretty cool story about how Jesus has changed my life just a couple of years ago — I think you should hear it sometime! Come find me and I’d love to share it with you. 🙂

My Story

I grew up religiously unaffiliated in West Jordan, Utah and received a scholarship to attend Boise State University. Once I got to campus in Boise, I was very lonely and tried to make as many friends as I could. One of my professors suggested that I go to the Newman center on campus. So, I woke up one day and decided that my life needed to change. I walked over to St. Paul’s Catholic Student Center and haven’t looked back since. I met a lot of great people (some were FOCUS missionaries themselves)  who were markedly different from the other people on campus. They seemed to have a joy and a purpose in life, which was something that I had been searching for since high school. I joined a bible study, the Frassati men’s group, and began to build a relationship with Jesus Christ. All of these things have led me to accept a full-time missionary position with FOCUS.

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus through FOCUS and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus own example to find the best method of reaching the world. I’ve been constantly amazed by the different souls I’ve encountered on campus.

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.
