Katelin Silva

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

Where I serve

God has called me to serve the students at West Virginia University! West Virginia University, located in Morgantown, is surrounded by beautiful mountainous ranges of God’s nature! My story of how I came to know Jesus and how He changed my life is pretty cool — I think you should hear it sometime! Come find me and I’d love to share it with you. 🙂

My Story

I was raised Catholic, but never knew what it meant to have a personal relationship with Jesus. I found the FOCUS missionaries on my own campus through my Newman Catholic community and was drawn to their joyous way of life. As I became more involved with FOCUS, I started to pursue a life of faith with intentionality. I learned how to pray and entered into Bible studies and discipleship with the missionaries. I eventually started leading my own Bible study and walking with others in their faith journey, helping to point them to Christ. Through the grace of God and having others lead me to Christ, I felt the call to become a FOCUS missionary! As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. I want nothing more than to bring this joy, that so many have shown me, to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. I cannot wait to see where this yes to FOCUS takes me as I begin this new journey!

Your Impact

            “Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire”                                                                      – St. Catherine of Siena –

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!
