Garrett Land

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

Where I serve

God has called me back to Tulane University in New Orleans, LA for my 6th year to serve as Team Director! I am very blessed to continue serving at this wonderful campus. I am looking forward to what the Lord has in store for us and our students this upcoming year!

Here is my team for this next year, please keep us and our students in your prayers!

My Story

It wasn’t until I was in Grad School that I encountered the Lord through a Bible Study. Up until that point I was barely living out my faith and saw everything as a checklist. However, this Bible Study and the frienships I made within it led me to realize the relationship I always longed for in my heart, which was with Christ. Almost a year later I accepted a position as a FOCUS Missionary. 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.
