Devin Rankin

Hi! My name’s Devin. I’m a FOCUS missionary at the University of Florida.

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at the University of Florida! You’ll typically find me hanging out at the St. Augustine Catholic Student Center, getting coffee at the university Wawa, or playing soccer on campus. I have a pretty cool story about how Jesus has changed my life and I’d love to share it with you!

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Jesus through Christ-centered, authentic relationships. 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. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level and encountered us in our brokenness and desired to redeem us so greatly that He suffered and died for us. Jesus also spent most of His public ministry investing deeply in a few. And these few continued to invest in others after Jesus left and through this little way of evangelization have changed the course of history by proclaiming the saving grace of Jesus. I desire to encounter students on campus just as Jesus encountered His disciples and to invest in them so that they may know the love and joy of life with Christ. I am deeply encouraged and excited by the souls that I have encountered and continue to desire to build more relationships. 

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 email me at [email protected] or give me a call at (850)228-1677! I would love to set up a meeting so I can share my story and my mission with you more deeply.

Team Florida with David Pernia and his wife Casey Pernia, Sabrina Jasso, Hayley Shaver, Sean Kelly, and me! Go Gators!
