Thomas Wurtz

Hey everyone. Welcome to my page.

Where I serve

God has called me to serve as a missionary. I do that from Denver at our Support Center. Our task is to support the more than 800 missionaries on over 175 campuses FOCUS’ serves nationally (and internationally).

As the founding director of Varsity Catholic, I am blessed to continue working with our outreach to college athletes. I also have the opportunity to support our efforts reaching those in fraternities and sororities. Additionally, we have launched a mentorship program for our married missionaries. Our hope is to support and encourage them in their marriage as they seek to be missionary families. 

My wife, Kate, as been working part-time with FOCUS helping the families of missionaries across the country. We have five young children.

My Story

I encountered Jesus Christ in a radical way through many folks I met in FOCUS. I decided after I graduated to go back to campus to serve the “type of guy I was”. I wanted to reach out to men that were like me and my friends my first three years of college – good guys but missing the real joy of Christ. 

I have been with FOCUS since 2001 and never looked back.

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.
