August Ministry Updates

 Hi friends and family, I am so excited to be writing this months update. I have so many new and fun updates and some prayer requests to share with you all. It has been a pretty relaxed month, but God has continuously shown me his goodness in so many ways. 

Summer FOCUS 

Each Summer, we have all of campuses come together in Richardson at a church on Thursday Nights for a sermon, praise and worship, and then afterwards there is time for fellowship. It is such an exciting time and a highlight of my week for sure! The students of Arlington get to meet new students,  I get to catch up with friends at other campuses, and and then getting to worship together in our larger community that stretches across the DFW metroplex. Here is a video from worship a few weeks ago! 


One of my closest friends Caroline Valnes (now) got married! I met her my freshman year of college through FOCUS. I then had the honor to be one of her bridesmaids, almost 7 years later. 

Summer Orientations

This is one of our future CoreFa's McKendry! 
The students and our staff have been working UTA's transfer, freshman, and veteran orientations as a way to meet incoming students. We have met so many new students. Two girls are already coming to Summer FOCUS! I am so excited to meet even more! 

Arlington Central Church

Bowling Event 

These are just some of the women at ACC and I love all of them! I have been going to this church since moving to Arlington, it is apart of the family of churches that supports FOCUS. 

I have been offered the role of helping develop the children's ministry there and I am SO EXCITED. Those that know me and my background know this is right up my alley. If you could be praying for me as I help to develop the curriculum, and work alongside the parents.  

Fundraising Update 


This upcoming Sunday is our licensing ceremony. It is when our staff recommits to our students and to the church. You are all welcome to attend and hear the commitments we make and celebrate with us following! I attached the graphic with the address and the information, if you are out of state or out of town, but would like to attend it will be streamed starting at 6:00 PM at 

Also we have shirts for sale if anyone is interested in purchasing a FOCUS shirt! I have already ordered a berry, but will probably get both! You could match with me and all our college students. 

Prayer Requests

  • Our students return to school August 22, help pray that their first few weeks are smooth and successful 
  • Our welcome week events are fruitful and we get to have good conversations with students 
  • We have had a harder time booking rooms for TNF this year than normal, please pray we continue to have a good relationship with the campus and that the rooms we need open up! 
  • Pray that as August approaches that our staff can get fully fundraised
