Our purpose is to help young girls between the ages of 13-18 achieve excellence across all life areas through our 1:1 mentoring program and quarterly group activities.

  • We "keep it real" and relevant for this current generation without pushing a “religious agenda”

"There are so many great things about GirlsFOCUSED, I barely even know where to start. First, Dr. Baker, Mrs. Murray, and every person on the GirlsFOCUSED board are so incredibly committed. They strive to help young women succeed in life by giving us an opportunity to have a relationship with God. What I love is that the founders of this organization make us girls feel like we are their number one, but what I love even more is that we actually aren't-- God is..."

From the desk of the Executive Director:

Greetings on behalf of FOCUSED Ministries, Inc.,

We are so pleased that God has led you to this site. In doing so, He has opened a door and provided an opportunity for us to introduce ourselves to you as to who we are and what we do.

We are a non-profit organization with the simple but awesome mission: to help young women achieve excellence. Like other social service programs, we strive to address multiple facets of life, however, we are different. We are motivated by a God-given burden to love and a deep desire to embrace and lift up all of our young sisters. We are unashamedly faith-based and all of our work is grounded in Scripture.

At FOCUSED, we understand that life is often a bumpy journey. As we travel along the road of life, God allows certain paths to intersect for the specific purpose of building relationships. It is through the blessing of relationship with one another that we are strengthened. With God in our midst, the strengthened are also then empowered to achieve excellence. This is our testimony and we want it to be yours, too. We believe you were created to be excellent in all things. We want you to also believe this truth and live excellently!

We invite you to seek us out and make a connection that just might be life changing!
God Bless You!


Trish, Executive Director

Our weekly prayer...

Wednesday Prayer Challenge - A Call to Prayer
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land (2 Chronicles 7:14, KJV).

This week’s weekly prayer will NOT be a prayer. This week is a clarion call to the praying people! Our regular weekly prayer will resume next week.

Yesterday morning as I prepared for the day, I asked the Lord what to pray about. Immediately the word PRAYER came to mind. Prayer has been in my heart for several months now. Really, since I was young, but in this season, not just prayer for the sake of praying, but prayer with intent, with purpose, expecting results! Prayer that goes on not just to say, “I prayed” but prayer where people are broken on the altar before God because of the sin that has separated us from His presence and prayer that acknowledges the holiness of God.

Last night as I sat to write the prayer, I actually didn’t feel led to pray. Instead, I felt led to present a challenge. As I continued to meditate, the word REVIVAL came to mind. I thought about that word. A word that I really haven’t thought about in a while or really seen in a while. I thought about the Azusa Street and Brownsville Revivals. Then I thought, we haven’t seen revivals like these in a long, long time and that saddened my heart. Where are the praying people? I mean the kind of praying people who stay on the altar. The kind of praying people who pray God’s word until stuff is shaken! The kind of praying people who pray until God’s fire comes down and licks up all the water (1st Kings 18:21-38)!

Well, this is a call to the praying people. Now, don’t play games. I am looking for praying people who will commit to prayer. People who are not ashamed to declare Jesus Christ and God’s word as truth putting their prayers out there trusting God to change the hearts of men, women, boys, and girls. Is that you?

Wednesday is FOCUSED Ministries Day. If you dare accept this challenge, post your prayer on our Facebook page - FOCUSED Ministries, Inc. with the #FOCUSEDprayerchallenge. Here’s the challenge: every Wednesday from October 14 through December 30, 2020, post your prayer for: healing in the hearts of men, women, and children. Pray for our leaders, our families, for revival, for people everywhere not only in the United States but all around the world! I believe God is calling the church back to prayer. Let’s heed the call!

Join our Prayer Squad. Visit our homepage. Look for a zoom invitation to join us in prayer in December. The Lord bless you! God is calling us! Thank you!! The Lord bless you!
