Maria Eggleston

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

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at University of Nevada Reno! Go Wolf Pack!

My Story

Growing up Catholic my faith was always in my life and something I greatly cherished. However, I constantly put my identity in what my abilities were and where the world told me I would find happiness. I always felt like something deeper was missing.

I went to undergraduate school at Washington State University. It was so exciting to go to a new place and explore what life would look like for me. I thought college would revel the “real me.” Fortunately God’s had was directing me toward the Newman Center on campus. There, I met a FOCUS missionary. Being told (and believing) for the first time that my identity comes from God alone was such a transformative moment in my life. A daughter of God was such a comforting place to rest. I started to pray daily and surround myself with people that were pursuing truth, beauty, and goodness. Being invested in and shown the path of discipleship was the greatest impact of my life. Now, all I want to do is point others to Him and see the way He shakes up their life! 🙂

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.
