Christopher Bonderer

Hey! My name’s Chris. I’m a FOCUS missionary.

Where I serve

God has asked me to serve Him on the college campus. You’ll typically find me doing everything I can to live a life in the fullness of Christ’s love for us; whether it’s rock climbing, windows-down cruising, or praying with people. I have a pretty cool story about how Jesus is changing my life — I would love for you to hear it sometime! Come find me. I’m excited to share it with you

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to overflow from my own relationship with God into the lives of others. My world has been turned upside down by the way that Jesus loves me everyday, and I want nothing more than to bring this joy and freedom to others. I get to do this by introducing students (and everyone I can meet) to the life-changing message of the God’s love in the Gospel. In His most perfect design of evangelization, Jesus humbled Himself, met us in humanity, and spent most of His time hiking and camping with a group of people that became His best friends then His most powerful advocates. When I think about how to change the world, why do it any other way than the Master Himself?

Your Impact

When I answered God’s call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to trust Him in all ways. I didn’t know all the details, but He did. As a FOCUS missionary, I rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help constantly re-center my desire and direction on His most Sacred Heart. If you are interested in partnering with me to change lives in all ways, always, please let me know of the best way to reach you, and I will schedule an appointment. The Lord has been working to reach people that we don’t even know yet; and He chose to invite us into it. “Come and see.”
