Sofia Castaneda

Hey! My name is Sofia Castaneda, and I am a FOCUS Missionary.

Where I serve

I’m thrilled to serve at the University of Texas at Dallas. GO COMETS!

My Story

As an incoming college freshman looking for purpose and identity, I was looking in all of the wrong places. A FOCUS missionary reached out to me, and reminded me that I was a beloved daughter of God. At Baylor University, I held executive positions in my sorority, and worked in Student Activities, inspired to make these institutions better. Through these leadership positions, I was able to grow as a leader and in my relationship with God.

My college years were some of the most transformative times of my life, and I’m overjoyed to be able to provide other students the same support. I am eager to challenge these students, and be able to walk with them as they encounter Jesus. How lucky I am to spread His word from every corner of the earth!

Your Impact

When I chose to join FOCUS, I committed to relying on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to carry out this mission. If you’re interested in partnering with me, please let me know the best way to reach you, and I’ll schedule an appointment. It would be an honor to share this mission with you.
