Lauren Meade

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

“You have made us for yourself, and our heart is restless until it rests in You.”

St. Augustine of Hippo


Where I serve

I spent my first year on mission serving the students in Hoosier Nation at Indiana University! For my second year of mission, I will be serving at DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana! Go Tigers!


Below is a picture of my team on placement day–Colin (first year), Isaac (second year), me, and our team director Caroline! We’re all new to Greencastle this year, and so excited to be sharing the Gospel at DePauw!

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus, especially during my time in college, and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus own example to find the best method of reaching the world.

Your Impact

“For it is in giving that we receive.” -St. Francis of Assisi 

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 in order to live out the Lord’s call for me to 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.
