FOCUS Parish Outreach at Saint John Neuman
“Every Christian is challenged here and now, to be actively engaged in evangelization: indeed, anyone who has truly experienced God’s saving love does not need much time or lengthy training to go out and proclaim that love.” (The Joy of the Gospel #120)
The FOCUS Parish Outreach model is based on the belief that the most effective method of sharing the Gospel is to follow the model which Christ Himself taught His Apostles. To this end, FOCUS missionaries invest deeply in the lives of men and women, accompanying them and teaching them how to invite others to know Christ in a deeper way. And then, parishioners are sent out to continue sharing the Good News with others and to live out the Great Commission to “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations …” (Matthew 28:19-20)
FOCUS missionaries are here at SJN working with parishioners through one-on-one or group discipleship, small group Bible studies and outreach events.
FOCUS missionaries are here to walk side-by-side with the SJN community …
To Know, Love and Serve God | We encounter God in an intimate relationship through daily prayer, the sacraments and the Scriptures.
To Build Virtuous Friendships | By building genuine friendships, we accompany parishioners on a deeper level .
To Teach Others to Share Christ | We teach parishioners how to share the gospel, who in turn teach others how to pass it on.
