This year we welcome one new FOCUS (the Fellowship of Catholic University Students) missionary to campus: Becca! She will be working alongside current GW FOCUS members Jim and SJ. Becca has dedicated at least two years to spreading the Gospel on the college campuses of America! We couldn’t be happier or more blessed to have her!

Our new team member, Becca Brown, is a native of Buffalo, New York but moved to Virginia in high school. She is one of six children and grew up playing softball, volleyball, and basketball. She is a die hard Yankee and Sabres fan too. She is a registered EMT and enjoys serving on local rescue squads. She graduated from the University of Virginia in 2014 with a Bachelors in Religious Studies.

Becca is really excited to be serving alongside GW’s current FOCUS team members Jim Beatty and Sarah Jane Leder. We expect great things this year from FOCUS and cannot wait for students to meet our new missionary!

Their outreach to campus includes evangelization, Bible studies, and one-on-one leadership training.  If you’re an undergraduate student who would like to join one of their Bible studies, please e-mail the missionaries at or stop by the Newman Center.
