Benjamin Oberbroeckling

Hello there. Welcome to my missionary page 🙂

Where I serve

I will be serving at Northern Michigan University, situated on the shores of Lake Superior in Michigan’s gorgeous Upper Peninsula. NMU is located in Marquette, Michigan which is surrounded by all kinds of fun “outdoorsy” things to do you can catch me taking students on hikes, going snowboarding, climbing some rock walls (or ice walls), or camping in the serene Northwoods; all while leading them closer to Jesus Christ.

My Story

I love my Catholic faith, and I’ve been blessed to come from a family and a community that has raised me in that. From Catholic grade school to a solid Newman Center at college, I’ve had people in my life helping me on this journey in the faith. Now as a missionary, I’m super excited to share the faith and invite people onto this journey with me following the perfect example of Jesus Christ. From students to mission partners, I’m stoked that you’re here!

Your Impact

My favorite phrase that I’ve heard regarding mission work is, “Some give by going, and some go by giving.” We’re all called to mission in one form or another, and by supporting me as a missionary, you are in fact leading other people to Jesus and to the sacraments through me. Every soul that I am able to reach is made possible by my mission partners, so I thank you in advance for your prayers and financial support.
