Hey! My name’s Kate. I’m a FOCUS missionary!

Where I serve

God has called me to serve the students at The University of Delaware for my 4th year on mission. I am beyond excited to return to The University of Delaware for another year! It has been a great joy to watch the ministry grow here over the last year and I can’t wait to see what the Lord will do this upcoming year at UD. You’ll typically find me hanging out on the green, trying to find the best cup of coffee on campus or trying all the flavors at UDairy! Jesus changed my life in a pretty awesome way, if you’d like to hear it shoot me a text!

My Story

I was raised catholic, but shortly after leaving high school I fell away from the faith. When I transferred to Ramapo college my junior year I met a missionary on campus and was completely drawn to the joy that the missionaries had and began to pursue a life of faith again with the help of one of the FOCUS missionaries. I learned how to have a prayer life, what it meant to truly live my life for Christ and what it meant to be a missionary disciple. Having this foundation I completely transformed my life for Christ, began leading bible studies and  discipling women on campus. I eventually felt the call to become a FOCUS missionary and I am so happy that I said yes and I am so grateful to be a missionary of Jesus Christ!


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.
