“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…”
This is our lifelong mission, and FOCUS is one way for students to embrace this mission. FOCUS Missionaries are present on 74 campuses across the United States, working to bring Jesus Christ and the Catholic faith to campus and empowering students to share His love with the world. Yet, “non-FOCUS” campuses still outnumber FOCUS campuses. How do students at non-FOCUS campuses enter into this lifelong mission without having missionaries at their campus to empower them?
Introducing the Digital Campus
The missionaries at the Digital Campus are here to serve you in a very unique way! Through the use of the internet, social media, video conferencing, mobile applications, and other popular forms of media, we are your connection to the mission of FOCUS.
Specifically, our goal is to utilize video conferencing to coach students in evangelizing, leading Bible studies, and discipling their peers. We will also direct students to the resources here on FOCUS Equip to help them carry out their lifelong Catholic mission. Through using technology to personally connect with students across the country, we hope to provide accountability, encouragement, and friendship in seeking Jesus Christ and leading others to do the same.
Be sure to Meet our Missionaries, and if you or someone you know are interested in working with the Digital Campus this year, let us know by filling out this form:
“God’s loving care for all people in Christ must be expressed in the digital world not simply as an artifact of the past or a learned theory, but as something concrete present and engaging.”
