Christian Apodaca

Hey! My name’s Christian, and I’m a Varsity Catholic FOCUS missionary!

Where I serve

God has called me to serve at the Colorado School of Mines in Golden, CO. You’ll typically find me hanging out around campus or the sports facilities. I am so excited to be back at Mines for a THIRD year! I have a pretty cool story about how Jesus has impacted my own life and lead me to full time service, here in Colorado!

My Story

After some indecision, I started my college career at Moorpark College, where I played baseball and had an athletic training internship. Upon my time spent in community college, I was living a life not centered totally around Christ. I eventually transferred to Cal State Fullerton and went to school to become an Athletic Trainer. At the beginning of my time in Fullerton, I was not directly looking for a Catholic community to be apart of, but by the grace of God, a FOCUS missionary, named Ben, reached out and invited me into a Bible Study. Months and many hours spent in prayer later, I found myself leading a Bible Study, growing in friendship with others involved with ministry on campus, and then eventually applying to become a missionary. My desire to be a missionary stemmed from experiencing Christ’s love and mercy first hand as I decided to root myself back in Christ, and I want everyone to be able to experience the graces He gives us. I would love to able to share more with you, so feel free to text, email, or call me to set up a meeting!

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. 🙂
