Matthew Haynie

Hi there! I am Matthew Haynie! I am a first year FOCUS Missionary. Thank you and God bless you for your generosity in supporting me while I serve at Texas State University! Eat ‘Em Up Cats!


“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.” Matthew 28: 19-20

Where I serve

I am blessed to be serving at THE Texas State University! I am currently a Junior Hire on the team while in my last year at TXST! This is my first year on staff and I am so excited to leave a legacy at my soon to be alma mater for the sake of souls!

My Story

Christ encountered me through a FOCUS Missionary.

When I entered my freshman year of college, Christ encountered me through a FOCUS Missionary who showed me the joy of the Gospel and what it truly meant to live the Christian life. Over the last three years, I have been steadily more convicted of the need for missionaries on the college campus!

Your Impact

With your generous support, I can continue to share the Gospel and invite students to make Christ the center of their life through Bible study and Discipleship! You’re generous support also helps get students to SEEK and participate in mission trips and summer projects!
