Jordan Theiler

“Go on your way. See I am sending you out like lambs into the midst of wolves. Carry no purse, no bag, no sandals; and greet no one on the road. Whatever house you enter, first say, “Peace to this house!” And if anyone is there who shares in peace, your peace will rest on that person.”

-Jesus Christ of Nazareth (Luke 10:3-6)

Where I serve

My Story

University of Southern Mississippi Alumni

Eagle Scout

Veteran

I encountered FOCUS in the fall semester of my senior year 2024 because a missionary’s disciple invited me to a bible study. Before I met FOCUS, I had never witnessed young virtuous Christians that “practiced what they preached”. I saw a light in the students at my Catholic Student Association that I could only explain to be God’s love. I had never met young Christians in such a large quantity that possessed this zeal for Christ and I wanted what they had. By observing and interacting with FOCUS-inspired disciples and missionaries, I learned how to live my life faithfully devoted to loving Christ and allowing him to lead me. Without FOCUS and the impact it has had on my campus, I would not be here and I would not be serving or loving God the way I do now. God is using this organization to expand his kingdom and touch students’ hearts across America and Europe.

Before I encountered Jesus Christ, I spent 3 years of college wandering the desert searching for him. During this time I experienced many typical things college students do, but where my story differs is, that I did EVERYTHING. I did Greek life, I did the military, I did the partying scene, I got in trouble, I failed many times, and I was deeply depressed. But all of this suffering serves a single purpose now… to relate to every single college student in one way or another. I believe God has called me to this mission because of my past and how it can reach so many struggling students. I am grateful for how much I went through because it has refined me into the sharp sword I desire to be for Christ.

My impact on campus will be one of love, experience, and compassion for all the students who feel hopeless or lost. I will be an older brother to those who need it and a friend to those who have none, but above all, I will be a faithful servant of the Lord and make disciples.

Your Impact

Your impact on campus will be felt through the students I encounter and the impact my team and I have on campus. Mission partners are the core of the FOCUS mission, you are the launch pad that makes the mission possible in the first place. Mission goes both ways, because of the contact we will share, this is an opportunity for you to see firsthand how God is working on our college campuses and how you are contributing to that. By walking with me down this path, we will both grow in faith and trust in the Lord.

By becoming one of my mission partners, you will enter into my mission with me. You may not be physically present on campus with me, but you can be there spiritually and financially. The support you choose to give me each month will primarily go towards the students: meals, events, SEEK, mission trips, retreats, (etc…), but will also support my livelihood (rent, bills, and insurance).
