Jacob Freitas

Hi! My name’s Jake and I’m a FOCUS missionary!

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at the University of Northern Iowa! Go Panthers!

My Story

During my early years in college, I had a deep encounter with the Eucharist that set a hunger for the Lord. As I began to engage in conversations, participate in a bible study, and attend Mass, I slowly began to realize the power peace of knowing God as my Father. During this continued realization, I started to see how many men on my campus had no idea who they were, they had no idea that they are children of the King. I felt a call to give my life to walking with these young men as they learn who Jesus is. It is an absolute joy to let the Lord use me in this way and I am extremely excited to share the many blessings!

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.
