Chris Livernois

Hi! My name’s Chris, and I’m a FOCUS Missionary!

Where I serve

I spent my first two years on mission serving at the University of Tennessee, but I know serve at FOCUS’ Denver Support Center (DSC) on the Events Team. While God continues to call me to serve Him by living as a missionary, He is using my background in event planning, A/V technology, and video production as a way of helping FOCUS share the gospel with more and more students.

My Story

Before joining FOCUS, I spent my post-collegiate years working at a parish and doing freelance videography for churches and non-profits. Working for the Church allowed me to grow closer to the Lord in ways I never imagined possible, which opened my heart to hear Him call me to serve as a FOCUS missionary. I spent two years sharing the gospel and living discipleship with college students in Knoxville, TN, and got to witness Jesus Christ change many lives. During this time, my life was also changed as I grew closer to Him, and I began to feel him calling me in a new direction. 

This past year, I got to help plan one of the largest regional gatherings for SEEK22 in Knoxville, and learned that I have a real passion for serving missionaries. With that experience combined with my professional background, I felt the Lord call me to serve on the events team with FOCUS. As I will be marrying my fianc e, Mary Jesse, this year, the timing seemed perfect to start this next chapter.

Your Impact

Jesus Christ needs to be known. The Church needs to grow. FOCUS continues to reach more college students every year, and a large part of how students and campuses come to know FOCUS is through our events and digital outreach. In a world where young people are inundated by messages and advertising every time they pick up their phone, we as a Church need to make sure that the Truth, Beauty, and Goodness of our Lord is what they experience. By supporting my mission, you allow me to serve the Lord full time in this mission, giving 100% of my time and talent to Him while still living my vocation as a (soon-to-be) husband and (hopefully soon-after) father.
