Jake Shonka

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

Where I serve

I am excited to serve as a member of the Philanthropy Engagement team.  Our family resides in Nebraska where we continue to live out mission in our local community.

My Story

Jesus Christ is truly present in the Eucharist.  This realization changed my life and is the major reason I am a missionary today.  I want others to experience the love and mercy of Jesus.  He is waiting for our ‘yes’.  This ministry has helped me to grow in my own relationship with Jesus and I have had the remarkable opportunity to play a part in others’ journey, as well.  I am continually being formed as a disciple of Christ.  It is humbling to participate in Christ’s transformative work through FOCUS and I am so grateful.

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.
