March update:

Hey, everyone! 

I would be remiss if I didn't update you guys on how we are addressing Coronavirus as a ministry. That's what this blog will be about. Some of you are aware that many of our campuses have extended spring break by a week and are moving all instruction to online-learning for the rest of the semester in order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Obviously, the situation is still ever-evolving, and we will adjust carefully as needed, but I know many of our ministry partners already have questions about what this means for FOCUS. Here's a letter we sent to our students detailing where we are right now. Please be praying for us and that we can take full advantage of this very different season of campus ministry.

Note: ministry will still happen, be it by phone, facetime, livestreaming, etc. We are committed to serve the campus to the best of our abilities, coronavirus or not.

First up: our UTA student testimony! Please take a moment to read this story about what God is upto in Arlington.


Okay this story is super special to me. 3.5 years ago, during my first year on staff at Collin College FOCUS, I noticed a girl being bothered by some guys afterwards. She came out to eat with my, my coworker Hannah, and some students. We didn't hear from her really after that, but she sent me this message last semester. It's edited for length, and it's anonymous to protect her. It was inspiring and meaningful and it made me and Hannah cry like babies because of God's kindness.
