“I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly” – John 10:10, RSV

Where We serve

Howdy! Our names are Chalon, Claire, and baby Joseph. We’re FOCUS missionaries.

God has called us to serve college students! Chalon serves as a Greek Missionary at our alma mater, Louisiana State University – Geaux Tigers! Claire serves as a member of the FOCUS Greek Team working on the National level to support our missionaries on campus in being even more effective in evangelizing their students. Joseph has some special needs with his genetic syndrome called Mabry’s Syndrome but often is the center of attention on-campus meeting students or during Bible Studies at home. We are thrilled to continue on mission with FOCUS this year and would love to share this mission with you! Give us a call or shoot a text and we’d love to share more with you about what the Lord is doing on our campus and can be doing for you as well!

Our Story

As missionaries, our greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. Our lives have been transformed by Jesus and we 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. We look to Jesus’ own example to find the best method of reaching the world. We’ve been constantly amazed by the different souls we’ve encountered on each campus we’ve served.

Your Impact

When we answered the call to join FOCUS, we made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help our family through this mission. We’ve been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with us as we serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with us, please let us know of the best way to reach you and one of us will schedule an appointment. We’d be honored to share this mission with you.
