Ethan Holverson

We are the Holverson’s. As of December 2022 we’re a FOCUS missionary family!

Where We serve

God has called us to serve for another year the college athletes at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh! We spend our days at the Newman Center, practice fields/courts, and around campus! We both are super excited to spend our second year of marriage serving the Lord together in this way! Come find either of us – we would love to talk to you!!

Meet Team Oshkosh 2022-23: Jamie, Pat (and Dominic), Sarah, Alli, and Ethan!

Our Story

We both were raised in great Catholic families. In college, we both realized that while we had known information about God, we didn’t actually know Him personally.
We both attended a FOCUS national conference with our respective schools, and each had profound encounters with God in the Eucharist. The same God who died 2,000 years ago wanted to know us personally – and not just us, but everyone else at the conference too! We were so amazed that there were so many other people our age who wanted to live their lives for Christ. 

We ended up each leading a Bible Study specifically for our teammates as students; After her senior year, Alli became a FOCUS missionary! She was placed at Loras College, where we met when Ethan was a senior. After graduation, Ethan joined Alli on mission! We had our son Dominic in December 2022 and we couldn t be more excited to be serving students the the Lord as a family!!

Your Impact

When we said “Yes” to join FOCUS, we both made the decision to rely 100% on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help us on this mission. 

It is because of this 100% reliance in monthly support that we are able to serve the students. Your support allows us to continue as missionaries while raising our son Dominic!

If you are interested in becoming a partner on this mission with us, please let us know of the best way to reach you and we will schedule an appointment. We are truly honored to share this mission with you!!
