Kate Busby

Greetings! My name’s Kate and I’m a FOCUS missionary and Team Director at West Chester University in PA.

Where I serve

God has called me to serve a third year full time with FOCUS at a campus that is new to me. I have been serving on a team of four at the University of Connecticut and have been called by God to step up in leadership by forming and serving as Team Director at WCU.  Our mission is to know Christ Jesus and fulfill His Great Commission;

Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.” – Matthew 28: 19-20.

Our team works by grace from God and inspiration from the Holy Spirit to collectively and strategically live like Christ and invite others into this challenging yet incredible way of life.


My Story

IMG 2406As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all people to Christ because He has transformed my life from the inside out and I know He wants to do that for others. I want nothing more than others to experience because it is what we are made for. The Lord has done this over the past two years through my sharing and living out the life-changing message of the Gospel. From leading bible studies, embracing the sacraments, sharing meals, praying with others, and pretty much doing anything with students, Jesus has brought people to life. This is not a dreadful or sorrowful sacrifice that I am grinning and bearing because “it’s a good thing to do” or because “you should as a Christian” but a life-giving and joy filled fiat (yes) that I embrace freely and with zeal. I am passionate about the vision of FOCUS as it has changed my faith and ultimately my eternal life and I am honored to serve as a missionary with this catholic and bold organization.

FOCUS is an organization committed to making lifelong disciples for Christ and building the kingdom of God, all supported by the generosity of others. Without my many mission partners, it would be logistically impossible for me to say yes to this call, and Jesus knows this! If you are interested in being a prayerful or financial partner on this mission, please contact me by phone or email to learn more.

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 am excited to continue to build upon a small team of monthly supporters who desire to be apart of this mission but cannot themselves go. 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. I trust that the Lord has called me into this battlefield and that He will provide for my every need through others.
