Blake Chapman

Hey! My name’s Blake. Thank you for joining me in this mission!

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville! I will be working very closely with the men in fraternities on campus! Here is my team on placement day with our first-year Justin!

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. During my time in grad school at the University of Kentucky, the missionaries met me where I was at and truly showed me the Lord. After the invitation to live with them for my second year, my life was changed. They invited me into a relationship with Jesus Christ through their authentic friendship. This encounter inspired me to serve college students, so that they may know Christ Jesus!

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.
