Aviv Stella

Hey! My name’s Aviv. I’m a FOCUS missionary.

Where I serve

I currently serve at the beautiful Ball State University in Muncie Indiana! Quite a change from my cold hometown of Stillwater Minnesota, but God has abundantly blessed this new home with incredible people! I can’t wait to get to know the students better and the awesome team I will be serving there with!

My Story

As a missionary on a college campus, my greatest hope is that I can introduce the students I meet to the God that radically changed my life. While I was in college, I was blessed to have missionaries meet me where I was at and walk with me in my Faith journey. They invited me into their lives, and I remember this burning desire to be like them both in their boldness and in their joy. I have never met people more free, happy, and fun in my life! I can honestly say that I don’t know what kind of person I would be today without them, and I owe my next adventure as a missionary to them and their witness! Life has never been more beautiful than the one I have chosen to live with the Lord, and I ardently desire for everyone I meet to experience this same gift.

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. I’ve been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus. If you are interested in partnering with me, please let me know of the best way to reach you and I will schedule an appointment. I’d be honored to share this mission with you!
