Grace Doherty

Hey! My name’s Grace, & I’m pumped to be a FOCUS missionary.

Where I serve

Through FOCUS, God has gifted me with the opportunity to serve college students on campus at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio! I am headed into my second year as a missionary, go Raiders.IMG 3523

I believe college can be some of the most formative years of someone’s life, and I love to get walk alongside women as they discover Jesus! Catch me drinking coffee at a local shop, chillin’ in a hammock on campus, or hanging with pals at home. I want to be your friend and hear your story. I would also love to share how I came to know and love Jesus and His Church.

My Story

As a freshman in college, my understanding of God and how He desires good for us was clouded. I often lived a double life and had little zeal to commit to prioritizing my faith. Later that year, I met a FOCUS missionary who began to befriend and share her life with me. Her love for Jesus sparked an interest in my heart. I asked her how to pray and she walked alongside me as I started to grow. Mary, our most gentle Mother, revealed her confidence in God through her Annunciation, and I knew I wanted to experience that. Through prayer, fellowship, the Sacraments, and Scripture, I came to know, love, and serve the living person of God. I know Jesus personally! I went on to be formed at two Summer Projects, lead a Bible Study on my campus, walk with girls in their relationship with Jesus, and say YES to serving Jesus full time as a FOCUS mish! & here I am!

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS and step out of the boat, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. This is not an easy task, but something I wholeheartedly believe in as the first apostles did it before me. 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 the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I’d be honored to share this mission with you.
