Grace Purvis

Hey y’all! My name is Grace. I am a first-year FOCUS missionary.

“You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide; so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. This I command you, to love one another.”

John 15:16-17

Where I serve

I will be serving at the University of Alabama in Huntsville!

My Story

Through the friendship and accompaniment of the FOCUS missionaries at Tulane while I was a student, I was shown what it meant to live a sacramental life. The biggest factor that changed my life was being introduced to a life of prayer, something that I am convinced is absolutely necessary and worth it for every Christian. Thanks to the constant support of my FOCUS missionaries who helped me form a life of prayer and taught me in discipleship and bible study, I can truly say that I am not the same person I was when I started college at Tulane, but rather I am more of myself and the woman God created me to be. I believe I was called in particular to FOCUS because no other ministry organization played a role in my reconversion in the way that FOCUS has. God’s grace is abundant and He is not bound by any circumstances, but I do not know if I would be where I am or who I am without the love and support of FOCUS. I am forever grateful for all FOCUS and it’s missionaries has done for me, and I am grateful to be given an opportunity to love students the same way I was loved.

Your Impact

Jesus came so that we may have life and have it more abundantly, and it is this life that I want to introduce to women on college campuses, modeling to them and showing them that this life is not only possible, but worth it. Through your spiritual and financial support, this is made possible. If you would be interested in learning more about how you can support me, or just want to chat, please reach out! You can contact me at [email protected]. Thank you and God Bless!
