Nicholas Driskill

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

It is not that I am seeking a gift. Instead, I seek the fruit that abounds to your benefit.” Philippians 4:17

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at the University of Memphis! You’ll typically find me hanging out at the University Center, the Catholic Student Center, or playing spikeball with students. I have a pretty cool story about how Jesus has changed my life through FOCUS — I think you should hear it sometime! Come find me and I’d love to share it with you!

My Story

I grew up Catholic but never made much of an attempt to live that out. When I got to college I quickly threw away my faith and started to live for myself. Thankfully, Jesus worked through several FOCUS missionaries to radically change my life and encounter His great love. It was through His great love that I found my identity as a beloved son. I knew I had to bring this love and joy to others, and I knew I had to play a bigger role as a Christian leader (and as a God Father) in the lives of those around me. Now as a FOCUS missionary I am seeking to change the world by bringing this love and joy to all of the students I am honored to serve.

Your Impact

We are all called to serve the Lord. Just as the foot has a different function than the eye, we are all one body called to serve the Lord in different ways as the body of Christ, the Church. 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.

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.” – Matthew 28:19
