Elivia Hilferty

Hello! My name is Elivia and I am a FOCUS Missionary!

Where I serve

The Lord has called me to serve at Emporia State University in Emporia, Kansas. What a gift it is that I have to opportunity to serve in Kansas! I am honored to be able to share The Gospel and the love of The Lord to the students at Emporia.

My Story

I am from a rural town in Eastern Colorado raised in the Catholic faith, but never truly felt that I had encountered The Lord until college. At The University of Northern Colorado, I was introduced to FOCUS Missionaries that invited me into bible study. Joining that bible study was the start of a re-conversion of the Catholic faith for me. Since then, my heart has been on fire for mission and to share His truth, especially to college students who are struggling to find their way in this world. It is by the grace of The Lord that I am now serving him on mission with FOCUS.

Your Impact

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