Hi! My name is Emmy! Welcome to the mission!

Where I serve

It’s time to grab a warm coat and start liking hockey as I head up to Grand Forks, North Dakota to serve my first year on mission at the University of North Dakota.

My Story

Growing up Catholic, I knew many things to be true about my faith. I am thankful for the people and experiences of my youth that led me to Christ, but had a hard time coming to fully believe the teachings and what the reality of having a relationship with Christ looked like. 

As a student at Northern Arizona University, I encountered the college culture with full force and could not comprehend how faith could play a role in my life. I gave all my energy to my sorority and friendships that left me feeling unfulfilled, leading my life away from Christ. At the beginning of my sophomore year I met the FOCUS missionaries on campus; they immediately became friendly faces and safe places in my life. I felt a small pull to the Newman Center at NAU, so for three years I would occasionally show up. However, there was a community at the Newman Center that the Lord started to show me I could be apart of. At the beginning of my senior year, I started stepping into various leadership roles at the Newman Center, leading me to have a strong pull to mission, particularly to sorority and fraternity life students. There is an immense desolation on college campuses around the country, where thousands of students in Greek life are running to many of the things the world says will fulfill the desires in our hearts, that only the Lord can speak into.  

Through the friendship and investment of my missionaries at NAU, I was given excellent examples on how to live a life that is truly authentic and rooted in Christ. I have been called into this mission to give back and show others that experiencing the Lord’s love and mercy is possible for them too. I cannot wait to encounter students from all different paths of life, bring a smile to their faces, and walk with them in our journey to Heaven!

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 the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I’d be honored to share this mission with you!
