Hello! We are Collin and Alexandra Likover and we, alongside our daughter Josephine, serve as missionaries. Jesus Christ changed our lives in college forever and now we want the whole world to know about Him. It would be a privilege to have you join our family in this adventure!
God has called our family to serve college students. Together we are a stronger force for Christ on campus than separately. St. John Chrysostom preached, “The love of husband and wife is the force that welds society together.” While it is a great sacrifice for us to be a family on mission, we are deeply convicted of the urgency of this mission and the need for college students to both encounter Jesus Christ and have the example of a family pursuing the Lord together.
Collin is going into his 6th year on staff and will be serving this coming year as Team Director at the University of Tampa. As Team Director, Collin is in charge of spearheading the mission charge wherever we are sent. He leads and forms a team of missionaries to reach the entire campus for Jesus Christ. Alex’s roles have increased since welcoming Josephine to the family. She leads both students and local mothers in bible studies and invests in women’s community as a mother. She plays a big part in the mission in making it possible to invite students and teammates into our family life through hospitality and events. The University of Tampa is an expansion campus for FOCUS, so we have been tasked with starting a new program there. Since there is no pre-existing campus ministry, we will be starting this program from ground-zero. We consider this to be a great honor from God and are so incredibly excited to begin serving the students of UT.
Our family has said yes to following Jesus Christ in a radical way by being full time missionaries. Part of this is that our family relies on the spiritual and financial support of generous mission partners in order for us to provide for our family and serve God. So far in our 5 years as missionaries, support raising has been one of the most tangible ways God has shown his faithfulness to us. If this mission or our family inspires you in any way, we want to talk to you! Please reach out to us personally either by phone (713) 248-7624 or through email at [email protected]. It would be a privilege to have you partner with us in this life-changing mission!
