Christian Long

Howdy, I’m Christian! Thank you for all YOU have done for Christ and His Church. Let’s keep changing the world!

Where I serve

God has called me to serve my second year at Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville, GA. I’m super excited to serve these students at GCSU for another year!  If you see me on campus, come say hey, and I’d love to talk with you about just about anything. Go Bobcats!

My Story

I attended Troy University (Go Trojans!) for all four years of college, where I majored in Biomedical Sciences with a minor in Spanish. I was an active member of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity starting in the spring of my sophomore year.

I personally re-encountered Jesus through an Awakening retreat during my freshman year of college, and slowly became involved with FOCUS through Bible studies, discipleship, FOCUS mission trips, and Summer Projects. Throughout the years of university, the Lord challenged me every day to yield a different part of my heart to Him: during my sophomore year, He challenged me to live a virtuous life; in my junior year, He called me to live a life focused on prayer and the Sacraments; in my senior year, He challenged me to reach others and teach them about Him.

I realized that Jesus was chasing after and working in my heart during the time leading up to my reversion and every moment after, constantly steering me back to His Heart. Through this whole process, I felt the call deep in my own heart to help others realize the Father’s love for them, and answered by becoming a FOCUS missionary. I would love to share my whole story with you!

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 continue 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.
