Ellen O'Gorman

Hey! My name’s Ellen. I’m a FOCUS missionary.

Where I serve

I am serving for my 3rd year at University of Colorado – Boulder! I am so excited to be returning to see what Jesus has in store for the students I’ll be encountering! SKO BUFFS!

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. My 1st year as a missionary, I served at Texas A&M University, then I moved to Colorado for my 2nd year. I am thrilled to be returning to CU Boulder for my 3rd year! My life has been transformed by Jesus during my time as a student at the University of Kansas. It was there that I realized that a relationship with God goes far beyond following the ‘rules’ of our faith. Jesus, who is tender and gentle, merciful and loving, desires to be in communion with us daily! It was through this communion in daily prayer, the sacraments, and walking with a FOCUS missionary at KU that convicted me of wanting nothing more than to bring the joy that God has given me to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. The Lord continually surprises me with His goodness and I cannot wait to see how He surprises me this year.

Your Impact

In saying “yes” to God’s invitation to pursue Him and others through being a missionary with FOCUS, I willingly 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.
