Karolina Plichta

Grüß Gott and Cześć! My name’s Karolina. I’m a FOCUS missionary and blessed to serve in Germany.

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at the University of Passau. I’m looking forward to meeting students from all over the world and sharing life with them. The Lord has great plans for the students in Passau, and I am honored to be a part of that plan 🙂

My Story

I was raised in a Polish family in the Ruhr area of Germany. At university, I completed my bachelors and masters degrees in Cultural Management. Two years ago, I met the FOCUS missionaries at Düsseldorf through a mutual friend who had heard about the new FOCUS campus opening. Upon meeting the missionaries, I was introduced to a life of prayer and friendship with Christ that I had never known before. Though, I had already been living in Catholic community, I had never heard of Catholic missionaries who went out onto university campuses and shared the Gospel with university students. I was invited into intentional discipleship and given the tools to go out and share the Gospel with those around me. The Lord had made it clear that He wanted me to serve Him in some way. I had prayed for years for a place where I could labor in the vineyard. And here the FOCUS missionaries were, answering my prayers.

Germany needs missionaries, the German people need to hear the Gospel. God made it clear to me that He wanted me to help bring Christendom back to Germany through giving of myself fully and leaving my home to serve as a missionary full-time.

This past year of service brought so many joys and blessings to my life. I got to see women taking those first steps in their faith, committing themselves more fully to Christ, and becoming leaders in the Catholic student center. I’m so excited to see what the Lord has in store for me this year!

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.
