Dillon & Mikhaila Pariseau

Hi! We’re FOCUS missionaries and we can’t wait to share our story with you!

Where We serve

God has called us to serve college students. You’ll typically find us hanging out at the university cafe, the Newman Center, or having long conversations about life at the most random times. Jesus changed my life in college and we know He’ll do the same for so many more college students as He guides us to share His love with them!

Our Story

We have somewhat different stories but the outcome is the same. God has called us to serve Him with FOCUS and He has worked tremendously in the hearts of our students! Serving with FOCUS has brought us to the University of Illinois – Chicago, University of Southern Indiana, University of Wisconsin – Platteville, and now Northwest Missouri State University. We got married in August of 2021 after years of building up a great friendship. Our aim is always to keep Christ at the center of our marriage and to allow students to see the fruits of a Christ-centered marriage as we seek to share Christ’s love for them!

Your Impact

Just as the body has many parts, so does the Church and the mission of evangelization! As we seek to be the hands and feet of the Church on campus, our mission partners serve as nourishment and strength for us. Through both prayerful and financial support, the Gospel is able to reach and touch the souls of numerous college students which will equip them to share Christ with others in their parish communities. This is how your love and support will allow missionaries and their students to spread the love of Christ to the whole world!
