Eric and Teressa Macsay

Hi! We’re FOCUS missionaries, we got married on July 16th, 2022, and we are expecting a little one in August 2024!

Where We serve

We have the joy of serving the students at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, IA. As married missionaries, we get to bring the Gospel to students from a unique perspective and hope to help young people believe in Good, Holy, Catholic marriages, and build up Christian leaders for the future of the Church.

We absolutely love the opportunity to know these students, to grow in authentic friendship with them, to model a Christ-centered marriage, and to invite them to grow in their faith alongside us!

Mr. and Mrs. Macsay

Our Story

We were both deeply impacted by FOCUS missionaries while we were in college. We were invited by them to make Jesus the center of our life and radically give everything to Him. This deeper “yes” to pursue Truth changed both of our lives forever. In giving everything to our Lord, we found joy and peace like never before. We discovered that in sharing our Faith with the hurting world around us, we became more fully alive. And there is nothing like getting a front-row seat to seeing the good and beautiful work Jesus is doing in other people’s lives!

The two of us at SEEK23, the FOCUS National Conference in St. Louis!

Your Impact

When we answered the call to join FOCUS as full-time missionaries, we made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to give us the freedom to be fully available for this mission. We’ve been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with us as we serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with us, please reach us by email at [email protected] and we will schedule an appointment with you.  We’d be honored to share this mission with you.
