Hi! My name’s Ellie and I’m a FOCUS missionary!

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at the University of Arkansas (Woo Pig!)!IMG 3197

My Story

Starting my freshman year at the University of Alabama (Roll Tide!!), I had very little intentions on being involved with our campus ministry on campus. After joining a FOCUS bible study and going on a retreat put on by our ministry due to not knowing where to make friends, I encountered the Lord on a personal basis for the first time. Seeing the joy, authenticity, and love from the student leaders at Bama Catholic and our FOCUS missionaries, I realized I had never had a relationship with God and it was something I was greatly missing in my life. The rest of my time in college I spent building my faith foundation and found a love for walking with others in their faith journey. Having the missionaries deeply invest and push me in my walk with Christ lead me to desire to do the same for others. Being a missionary has allowed me to witness students fall in love with Jesus everyday and has placed an even greater desire to make Christ known and loved by all!

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.
