Blake Hera

Hey y’all! My name’s Blake. I’m a FOCUS missionary.

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville, GA. Go Bobcats!

My Story

I grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana, where I went to Catholic schools all the way through high school. It wasn’t until college where I really started to lose my faith. In my freshman year, I almost immediately stopped going to mass on Sundays, and I became agnostic.  I was skeptical about everything, and I questioned the existence of a God who I grew up learning about since Pre-K.

In my junior year of college I had a rock bottom moment that made me realize that I had no other place to look except upward. After a friend from high school invited me to join his Bible study, I slowly but surely started to allow God back into my life. This encounter ultimately led me to where I am now.  I’d love to tell you more about my story!

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.
