Where We serve

God has called our family to serve the mission of Focus for the last 7 years! Catherine began serving at Georgia Southern University in the Fall of 2017 and David joined her in May 2018 after they got married. In our time at GSU, God blessed our family abundantly with three beautiful children: Lucy (5), Judah (3), and our newest addition Maria (1)!

Over the last couple of years, we have felt God’s call to move closer to family while continuing to serve in mission. So, last year in 2023, we were led back to our home state of Alabama with David serving as the Team Director at Troy University! This will be David’s fifth year as a Team Director as we return there for the upcoming school year (2024/25)! God continues to bless us as we follow wherever He leads us!

Our Story

As missionaries, our greatest desire is to bring others 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 continue to be amazed by the souls that we encounter on campus.

“Evangelization will never be possible without the action of the Holy Spirit.” (Evangelii Nuntiandi 75) We have seen the Holy Spirit do amazing things over our 5 years as a missionary family! Pray that God will continue drawing the hearts of the students we encounter closer to Him!

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 us in 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 we will schedule an appointment. We would be truly honored to share this mission with you. Thank you for your love and support!
