Kayla Garrison

Hey! My name’s Kayla. 

I am a West Area Program Director for FOCUS.

Where I serve

After serving as a campus missionary at Washington State University and Eastern Washington University from 2018-2021, the Lord has called me back to FOCUS in the Pacific Northwest as a collegiate outreach program director based out of Spokane, WA. As a program director, I get to work on national projects and help support our West Area regional leadership who serve 46 schools from the west coast to the Dakotas. It is a joy to serve as a kind of missionary to the missionaries!

My Story

My greatest desire is for souls to know the Lord. Like many people, for a long time, I knew a lot about Jesus but didn t know the depth of relationship that He desired to have with me. In college, the Lord worked through FOCUS missionaries and fellow students to invite me into that deep relationship and show me how personally He wanted to know me, speak to me, and love me. I want everyone to experience the joy and peace that comes from a personal relationship with Christ and His Church. This is the only way to true happiness and fulfillment – the only way to experience life to the full! The mission of FOCUS, the Little Way of Evangelization, is based on this relationship. I am so excited to be called back to serve in this organization, as I have seen the Lord do amazing things in the hearts of many through this apostolate!

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 served on campus and now at the regional and national level. If you are interested in partnering with me, please contact me at [email protected]. I’d be honored to share this mission with you.
