Taylor Mudgett

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

Where I serve

God has called me to serve the students of Bemidji State University in the beautiful state of Minnesota! You’ll typically find me taking walks around campus, sharing a meal with friends, or hanging out at a local coffee shop!

My Story

Growing up in a Catholic family I always knew the importance of going to Sunday mass, praying before meals, and thanking God at the end of each day. I am so thankful for this base. It was because of my loving parents and 5 younger siblings that I knew I wanted to carry on in pursuing the faith when I moved away to college. When I made my move as a college freshman, I was overwhelmed by the number of different choices I could make. I could choose what I ate, where I spent my time, and if I was going to go to mass. Lucky for me, my sweet mother brought me to our Newman Center on freshman move in day. It was there that I met a group of FOCUS missionaries that forever changed my life. It was through their witness that I grew in my understanding of what authentic friendship was, learned more about my Catholic faith, and fell deeply in love with Jesus. Now I am so thankful to be able to serve as a FOCUS missionary myself! As a missionary I hope to spread the love and joy of Jesus to the students I encounter. It is because of His love that I have found purpose in my life and I want everyone to know that this same love is for them as well!

Your Impact

When I answered yes to the call of becoming a FOCUS missionary I also said yes to relying on financial and spiritual support from mission partners. It is because of the generosity of these mission partners that I am able to continue serving college students full time as a missionary. 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 would be honored to share in this mission with you.
