John and Caitlin Collins

Hey, my name’s John, and this is my wife Caitlin! I am the team director, and together we are serving at the University of Wisconsin – La crosse.

Where I serve

God has called us to serve the team of missionaries and college students at UWL. We love living an active lifestyle on campus spending time at the Newman Center, playing sports, and going for hikes. Jesus Christ reached us while students at the University of Oshkosh, come find me and I’d love to share our story with you.

My Story

My greatest desire is to lead all souls to Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus own example to find the best method of reaching the world. I’ve been constantly amazed by the different souls I’ve encountered on campus.

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 in my effort toward salvation. Now it is my goal to strive toward salvation with as many students at Franciscan, and mission partners. 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.
