Jeanne Henkel RCMC Year

My name is Jeanne Henkel and I am a high school senior currently dual enrolled at University of North Georgia, graduating with an Associates degree in Clinical Health Science in May. Before I continue on to get my Bachelors of Science in Nursing, I have decided to take a gap year and serve as a missionary through Mission Network's Regnum Christi Mission Corps program.

My first experience teaching the faith was being a co-catechist for a 2nd grade class with my mom when I was 11. When I was in 8th grade, my friends and I helped start a girls club to teach girls conviction about their faith, virtue and service in their community. Since then I've had the opportunity to plan, run and lead many retreats, summer camps and small groups throughout high school. 

My most recent undertaking was in January, where my friend and I ran a retreat called "You Are" for high school girls, teaching them about their worth and identity as a daughter of God.

Through those experiences, I have developed a deep love for my faith, and a desire to share it with others. I've felt God calling me to grow and stretch myself and take my part-time work serving God and others and make it my full-time work as a missionary in a whole new community. Along with help and support from my mentors in my community, who I have felt very inspired by, I decided that being a missionary through the RCMC program would be the best way for me learn more about my faith and the change I can bring about with it. I hope that through Christ, I am able to be that mentor for the young kids in whichever community I am sent to. 

A missionary is dependent on the support and generosity of others, so I ask you to consider giving a donation to help me reach my goal. We are asked to fundraise $7,500 to cover the costs of transportation, formation, food and housing. If you feel called to donate to help me be able to serve, I will be forever grateful and you will always be in my prayers. If you have any questions about the mission, please contact me:
