Nathan Stanley

My name’s Nathan. I am the Sr. Director of Talent & Leadership Development with FOCUS.

Where I serve

I lead FOCUS’ hiring and leadership development efforts that enable our Christ-centered leaders to thrive, grow, and impact others for Jesus and His Church.   My family and I reside just West of Denver in Arvada, CO. We continue to lead Bible studies with our parish and school community and walk closely with others striving to grow in and share their faith.

My Story

When I was in college, I encounter the Person of Jesus Christ in a very personal way.  I was living a life that was filled with no peace.   In Christ, I found peace, joy, and a desire to share my faith with others.  I am now in my 19th year of mentoring college students and young leaders.  I have served on 3 different universities, established and expanded FOCUS work on the East Coast, and continue to mentor and to develop young leaders.  I now serve at a senior leader with FOCUS and hope to continue to be a light to the world, my family, and all those we come in contact with.

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.  The impact of this partnership has lead to thousands of college students being reached, young and future leaders being mentored and trained, and the blessings of many marriages and religious vocations fostered.

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 have you share in this mission.
