Four Fun FOCUS Updates

1. Kevin has a new title in FOCUS.

Kevin is now the Director of FOCUSequip. FOCUSequip is the curriculum division of FOCUS. This includes all of FOCUS' Bible studies, discipleship curriculum, and evangelization tools. It also includes the electronic delivery of most of these items via his department's new website, FOCUSequip.org.

2. Lisa has a title in FOCUS.

After spending the last year volunteering my time to help keep our over 80 wives connected, FOCUS decided to officially contract me as the Family Liaison. Since then I've launched a mentorship program for our newer wives in addition to sending out quarterly newsletters and other small projects here and there. It's been great to have a little side project (we're talking less than 5 hours a week) that combines my love of FOCUS, FOCUS families, and organizing things!

3. Kevin's new bible study The Crux, which is FOCUS' introductory bible study is rockin' campuses.

In the last few weeks the study has been visited over 1,000 times online where people can download the leader guide. Through keeping in touch with campuses we know that thousands of students on dozens of campuses are going through it every week. That is awesome.

4. Kevin just finished helping write a document that was sent to be reviewed at a Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization. 

Okay, you have to understand... THIS IS REALLY COOL. The Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization is holding a Bishop's Synod in 2012. To prepare for it, they have invited several Catholic missionary groups, including FOCUS, to attend some preliminary meetings for the Synod and to submit their thoughts on the new evangelization. Kevin was able to assist Curtis Martin in putting together FOCUS' thoughts on the new evangelization. Curtis and a few other FOCUS staff will attend meetings in October.
