Hey! I’m Jessica, and I said yes to being a FOCUS missionary! I’d love to share my mission with you! 🙂

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at Seton Hall University through FOCUS. I’m excited to get started on this new adventure! I would love to invite you to share in the mission and this experience with me!

My Story

As I was nearing the end of my senior year my mom challenged me to do at least a year of service before pursuing a graduate degree or career. I explored many options of places I could serve and ways in which I could make a difference. However, I struggled to find something which felt right. Then one day when I was contemplating how I could serve the Lord I felt called to FOCUS. It just hit me out of nowhere and felt correct and I felt a great peace come over me. Through prayerful discernment and talking with friends and family I said yes to FOCUS! My family has been so supportive of this radical “yes,” and I am so blessed to have their love and encouragement.

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.
