Marge Novacek

Hi I’m Marge! I am a FOCUS missionary serving on our events team planning opportunities for people to encounter Christ! 


Where I serve

God has called me to serve at the Denver Support Center, which is where the ‘behind the scenes’ work happens to send missionaries onto campuses and parishes. I am serving as an Events Specialist, planning opportunities for FOCUS students, staff, and parishioners to encounter Christ. 


My Story

As I was entering college in 2016 trying to figure out what school to attend, I was determined to stay close to my hometown in Wisconsin. Five hours driving distance – that’s the farthest I’d consider. But before I knew it, I had committed to the University of Dallas and was on that sixteen hour road trip down to Texas. 

This has been the story of my life: choosing to go down one path, until God sends me the complete opposite way! You never know what great things He has planned for you and I have learned time and time again, the importance of trust and openness. At UD, I found the most wonderful community of humans! The friends I made here helped me take charge of my faith. Each day, I am shown through their example how to live more virtuously. I am constantly challenged and encouraged to keep God at the center of my life and to keep growing into a deeper relationship with Him. I thank God every day that Dallas was part of His plan. 


Now He has called me to FOCUS! Although I never anticipated leaving Texas, I have never felt more called towards something. I am excited and honored that I get to play a part in this mission. My hope is that every college student has the opportunity to find that same God-centered community that I was so blessed to have been given. It is through genuine friendship that God’s love is spread. 


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 so that together we can reach as many people as possible. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know the best way to reach you so I can schedule an appointment. I would be honored to share this mission with you! Thank you so much for your prayerful and financial support!! This mission is impossible without you.
