Erin Mahaffa

Hi! My name is Erin and I’m a FOCUS missionary!

“My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, my spirit rejoices in God my savior.”

Luke 1:46-47

Where I serve

The Lord has called me to serve at the University of Southern Indiana in Evansville, Indiana! Go Screagles!

My Story

I was born and raised Catholic. I knew who Jesus was and His importance, but I did not have a real relationship with Him. Throughout my life, I put my identity into other things and was grasping for something more.

I arrived to Ball State University in the Fall of 2020. (Chirp Chirp!) I was excited for a new adventure, and I had no idea what was in store. I was invited to go to Mass and events at the Newman Center by a friend. I then encountered a FOCUS missionary. This missionary took the time to invest in me and I was eventually invited into a bible study and then later into discipleship. It was because of the investment of student leaders and missionaries in me I was able to deepen my relationship with Christ.

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to invest in students the same way I was invested in. I want to help to bring other young women and men to Christ. The Lord is SO SO good and I cannot wait to be a witness to the transformation of students’ hearts.

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 am not able to reach students without your prayers and generous support! If you would like to join my team, it would be a great honor to have you! You can reach me at [email protected] Please contact me and I would love to set up an appointment to meet with you!
