Eric Zimmerman

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

Where I serve

The Recruitment Team

After three incredible years as an on-campus missionary, I now serve as a Recruitment Manager based out of our Denver Support Center.  My team works to help men and women to become FOCUS Missionaries!  We visit different campuses, host recruitment events, and follow up with students one-on-one.  Our ultimate goal is to help them say “yes” to God’s call in their life-whatever that may be!  We develop relationships with applicants throughout the year and run our recruitment weekends.  I truly believe that the men and women who are formed as missionaries in FOCUS are CHANGING the world.  It is an honor and a joy to serve on this team!

My Story

I am originally from Lincoln, Nebraska where I was blessed to have a wonderful and supportive family help form me in my faith. In college, I attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where I was met by an amazing Catholic student community and found authentic friendships that helped push me in my relationship with the Lord.

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus own example to find the best method of reaching the world. I’ve been constantly amazed by the different souls I’ve encountered on campus.

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.
