Patrick McClain

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

Where I serve

I’m currently serving at the University of Delaware in Newark, Delaware.

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. My life was been transformed by Jesus when I joined the Newman Center at Rowan University during my junior year of college. Through friends at the Newman Center, I met Tim, who was a FOCUS missionary at the time. Through his mentorship and encouragement, my heart began to open to the Lord’s plan for my life. Early my senior year, I was struck by the Gospel reading of Matt 19, when Jesus encounters ‘a rich young man’. Jesus call this man to give up everything and follow him, and this was when I felt God calling me to be a missionary. 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.
