Luke & Mika Russell

Hey! My name’s Luke. I serve on the Staff Care team for FOCUS. It is my joy to serve all of our missionary staff as we seek to know Christ Jesus and fulfill the Great Commission. We would love to share this mission with you!

Where We serve

My wife Mika and I and our three children, Sophia, Nora, and Josephine, live in beautiful Bellingham, Washington.

As a missionary to the missionaries, I serve all of FOCUS as a member of the Staff Care team. With almost 1,000 missionaries, we are in 5 countries, 44 states, 8 digital campuses, 17 parishes, and over 200 college campuses. It is my gift and privilege in my role to help ensure our missionaries are the best equipped, trained, and Spirit-filled evangelists they can be so they can share the Gospel with those who need to hear it most.

Our Story

As missionaries, our greatest desire is to lead all people to Christ. Our lives have been transformed by Jesus and we 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. We look to Jesus own example to find the best method of reaching the world. When we encountered the person of Jesus in college, our lives changed forever. We would love to share our story with you!

Your Impact

When we answered the call to join FOCUS, we made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help us through this mission. We’ve been blessed with the most amazing people who journey with us as we serve in the apostolate of FOCUS. If you are interested in partnering with us, please let us know of the best way to reach you and we will schedule an appointment. We would be honored to share this mission with you.
