About Jim Jansen

Jim is a cradle Catholic from Omaha, Nebraska, with over 20 years of experience in evangelization and parish renewal.

At the invitation of his roommate at Benedictine College, Jim joined one of the first FOCUS Bible studies in 1999. After graduation, he became a FOCUS missionary on the founding team at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. During his 18 years on staff with FOCUS, Jim served as a campus missionary, team director, and regional director.

Jim returned to Omaha in 2017. Captivated by the vision of One Church: Encountering Jesus, Equipping Disciples and Living Mercy, Jim now leads the Archdiocese of Omaha’s efforts to coach pastors and train disciples for mission.

Jim is also the host of EquipCast, a podcast produced by the Archdiocese of Omaha, designed to help pastors and leaders transform culture.

Jim holds a master’s degree in Pastoral Theology from Madonna University in partnership with Ave Maria University. He and his wife, Kim, live in Bellevue, Nebraska, with their six children.

Jim’s new book A Clear Path: How to Make Missionary Disciples in Your Parish will be out soon.
