Francis Jakubicek

Hello! My name is Frank Jakubicek. I am in my first year serving as a FOCUS Missionary!

Where I serve

I currently serve at Illinois State University while finishing up my Biology degree. I am from Illinois and have family history at ISU so I love being a Redbird! You can find me on campus playing Ultimate Frisbee on the Quad, studying at the Bone Student Center, or golfing at the school course!

My Story

I grew up in a faithful Catholic family and always had a strong foundation upon which I grew my faith. Basketball was a big part of our family and took up a lot of my time and energy. I was blessed enough to play at Belmont University for 3 years before the Lord decided to call towards something else. In that transition, I learned to rely more on the unending Love, Mercy, and Joy that Jesus offers us every day, and I want nothing more than to share His Goodness with the world! I am so blessed to have the opportunity to spend time with both athletes and non-athletes, working to help them foster a beautiful, loving relationship with Christ.

Your Impact

As a missionary, I have the honor of relying on my mission partners for spiritual and financial support, working together to bring us all closer to the Heart of Jesus. As someone who has experienced and wrestled with the common temptations of the college life, I make it a goal of mine to work with young men and help them realize their truest identity as a son of God. I am especially passionate about teaching these men to overcome the lies from the enemy trying to blind them from the vision of what a real man looks like in the eyes of Jesus Christ. And the best part is, YOU can join this mission with me!
