Student Groups

We are a group of students from Southwestern Assemblies of God University who FocUS on Missions Here and Now, in the United States. Our 20/20 FocUS vision is to reach all fifty states, ten most populated cities, top ten unreached people groups, and the ten largest tribes in America by the year 2020. We believe God has called SAGU to engage in U.S missions over the next eight years through sending out people to serve in ministry. In order to fulfill this vision, team leaders and assistant team leaders will be enabled, equipped, and empowered to lead their peers across the country to minister in every state. The ultimate goal of FocUS is to expose students to the world of missions and challenge them to serve in the field for a longer period of time. 

Mission Statement:

To serve the missionary body and local churches through opportunities that will raise awareness of world needs, strengthen callings, and develop leadership skills.
