Kyle Skoumal

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

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students in Detroit, Michigan! We primarily serve the campuses of Wayne State University, the University of Michigan – Dearborn, the College for Creative Studies, and Henry Ford College through the Detroit Catholic Campus Ministry. You’ll typically find me hanging out at coffee shops, the Student Center, Tigers games, or chatting with people around campus.

My Story

My greatest desire as a missionary with FOCUS is to love the people I encounter well, the way Christ would. Finding out I could have a personal relationship with Jesus in my early college years, and coming to accept Him into my heart was a transformative time in my life. FOCUS came to my campus at the University of Northern Iowa during my senior year and was such a blessing for our campus ministry and students. I was inspired by the courage they had, the hard work they put in, and the sacrifices they made to love and serve our campus well. I am truly blessed to have had great friends and mentors walk alongside me in my faith journey, and I am excited to make that my full-time job with the Detroit Catholic Campus Ministry.

My mission is to love and serve college students, through friendship and invitation, so that Christ’s love can spread through their hearts into others’. The commission of Christ, to save souls, is fundamentally broad and specific, as it’s a message for the masses, but also for the individual. Jesus loves everyone, and He loves you.

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.
