Rachel Stovall

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

Where I serve

God has called me to serve at Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville! I am entering my second year on campus! I would love to share my story with you!

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. During college, I had a deeper conversion and fell in love with Jesus by encountering him through daily prayer and the sacraments. I never understood how relational our God is and it changed everything! The desires of the world started to fade and my love of Jesus and his church increased. 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 am humbled that Jesus uses me as his instrument to draw souls to Himself. It is the biggest gift to walk alongside students at SIUE! I would love to have you join me in this mission!

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.
