Elizabeth Foley

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

Where I serve

God has called me to serve and invest in college students. You’ll typically find me hanging out at coffee shops, hammocking around campus, playing a pick-up game of sand volleyball, or hanging out at the Newman Center on campus. My relationship with God has drastically changed my life and I would love to share it with you sometime!

My Story

Throughout my 4 years I spent at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, I witnessed and experienced the searching for purpose and Truth within my sorority and on campus, where we are often fed the lie that fulfillment comes through earthly accomplishments, leaving our hearts unsatisfied. Our culture subconsciously tells us that we can be complacent with our faith in college, and the only thing we need to worry about is just being a good person . I felt drawn to FOCUS because we need authentic and heroic Catholics to stand in the midst of a college campus and live the Truth. College is the time where habits are formed that typically continue to stick into adult-life, thus I desire to help students build a prayer life and get to know the relational Jesus, rather than merely the rules. Ultimately, I felt drawn to FOCUS because I believe I have been given the gift of my Faith and desire to help reawaken that gift in others. Thus, I am truly STOKED to invest in the women on campus God places in my life, because we are in a battle and Heaven is worth fighting for.

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.
