Howdy! My name’s Molly. I’m a FOCUS missionary at the University of Alabama!

I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love

St. Teresa of Calcutta

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa! In college, Jesus brought me closer to His heart through the investment of women relentlessly striving towards divine intimacy. It was in these relationships that the Lord revealed to me His desire to know me personally and intimately. How transformative and life-changing the act of one simple invitation by an obedient disciple of Jesus! It is in invitation and gift of self that Jesus reveals Himself to us through others. I can not wait to meet those the Lord places in my path and to invite them into an intimate relationship with Jesus the way others did for me. Please pray for me, my team, and for the students at the University of Alabama! Roll Tide!

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus and I 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. I look to Jesus own example to find the best method of reaching the world. I’ve been constantly amazed by the different souls I’ve encountered on campus.

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.
