Hey!! My name’s Parker, and I’m a FOCUS missionary!

With such affection for you, we were determined to share with you not only the gospel of God, but our very selves as well, so dearly beloved had you become to us.

Where I serve

After graduating in December 2022 from GW, God has called me to serve college students at campuses in the Boston Area through a new pilot program in FOCUS. I am excited to be a part of this new program as an opportunity to share the person of Jesus Christ with students on multiple campuses all around the city. I’m fired up about being part of a community of souls in the Boston Area who will be equipped to bring the Good News everywhere they go.

Here’s a pic of me (bottom left) and my teammates for the 2023-24 school year, Abbie (top left), Izzy (top right), and Anjelo (bottom right). Needless to say, we are so excited for this year.

My Story

When I went to college, I never could’ve anticipated the ways that the Lord was about to impact my life. For the first few months of my time at college, I was filling the God-sized hole in my heart with anything besides God that I could find, but I quickly realized that NOTHING was satisfying me. That’s when a FOCUS missionary at my university named Ben invited me to trust the Lord with my whole life.

Since that invitation into a deeper relationship with Christ, my heart has been set on fire. I learned God’s desire for communion with me in daily prayer, bible studies, and above all, the sacraments. I have fallen in love with the Lord, have seen miracles, been consoled by Him in sorrows, gone on some wild adventures, experienced abundant peace and a multitude of joys, and found a deeper purpose than I’d ever had. On a pilgrimage in the summer of my junior year, it became clear that the Lord was calling me to devote myself full-time to His mission and do my part in the Great Commission, making disciples of all nations. I knew that I couldn t keep the love that I had discovered hidden from the world… I’d have to share it with EVERYONE.

I said yes to FOCUS because I see, and have personally experienced, the deep desire in the hearts of young men for the Truth about our identity, our purpose, and our ultimate destination. I am so honored to be able to invite you on this mission with me, and I pray that as you join my team, and as we fulfill the Commission together, you can rejoice in the abundant graces that flow from this ministry of winning souls for Christ!

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 and served as a living reflection of the Father’s powerful provision for His mission. If you are interested in partnering with me in this important work, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. You can shoot me a text at 717.778.1859 or reach me by email at [email protected]. I’d be honored to share this mission with you.
