      Fundraising

      1. Each FOCUS Missions participant has the opportunity to fundraise the entire cost of their mission trip. Consider that fundraising allows people who may not have the opportunity to travel on a mission trip to participate in this essential work through you. In another sense, “some give by going, while others go by giving.” Allowing others to support us through their financial commitments and prayers is essential to the success of FOCUS Missions!
      2. After you have been accepted on a mission trip, you will be contacted by your personal fundraising coach who will train and mentor you along the way. 
      3. Please feel free to contact us at any time by phone or email with your fundraising questions.

      Testimonies

      “Going on a FOCUS Missions trip gave me the chance to step out of my comfort zone and directly into serving God and His people. In just one week, I went on an incredible faith journey that cemented my relationship with and faith in Jesus Christ. The most beautiful part was actively living out Christ’s love alongside wonderful people from all over the country and being able to grow with them. Back on campus, I now feel more confident than ever in my faith and I love sharing God with others!”
