FOCUS

We are FOCUS missionaries. FOCUS stands for the Fellowship of Catholic University Students. FOCUS is on 113 campuses in 37 states with 478 total missionaries. We live life with students and invite them into a relationship with Jesus. We go to mass, pray, lead bible studies, disciple students, and invite them to share in our lives. We also fundraise our salary.


What?? 


It really isn't as crazy as it seems. We are so thankful for so many supportive family and friends who believe in our mission.

We are able to very actively take part in the new evangelization by serving students, presenting the gospel, and showing students how to have a relationship with Jesus. Our mission statement is, "To Know Christ Jesus and Fulfill His Great Commission." And our Main Thing:

Inviting college students into a growing relationship with Christ Jesus and His Church. Inspiring and equipping them for a lifetime of Christ-centered evangelization, discipleship, and friendship in which they lead others to do the same.

That is just a real short explanation. I hope to write more to give a good glimpse into what missionary life is like and in particular what is looks like with a family. Also visit the website for a way better description!

Feel free to ask any questions in the comment section!
