My Story

IMG 7060Hi! My name is Tara and I am a first-year missionary with FOCUS!
The Lord has radically transformed my life by His grace and my desire is to live by love and for love.
I have always known about God by going to Catholic school and youth groups but in college I attended The Ohio State University and I actually started to understand the importance of having a relationship with Him.
Ever since I have begun prioritizing a relationship with Him and living in a community of authentic brothers and sisters who brought witness to the Gospel, my life has changed radically for the better.
Now, He has allowed my heart to break so that I may be a vessel for His grace to flow so that others might know Him.

I am inspired by St. Peter and St. John when they say, “It is impossible for us not to speak about what we have seen and heard.” -Acts 4:20.
Truly I have seen and heard the Lord and I cannot help but share the goodness of His love!

Your Impact

Saying “yes” to upbuild the Kingdom is worth fighting for.

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.

Feel free to contact me: [email protected]

Thank you for your consideration of helping me live a life that changes lives.
