Josh Santo

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

Where I serve

During my five years as a campus missionary, I was able to invite men to ask Jesus what he wanted them to do with their lives after college. After working on campus, I went to work as the National Recruitment Manager for FOCUS at the support center in Genesee, CO. I now work as the director of the Freedom Project. Through this project I am able to help staff and students experience greater conversion by helping them overcome struggles with purity, mental health, body image and addiction through one on one mentorship and support groups while also encouraging counseling and spiritual direction.  

My Story

I grew up in Falls City, NE and attended the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. After graduating, I married my best friend, Beth, and now have five children, Giorgio, Lou, Walt, Stella and Perpetua. I became a missionary alongside my wife in 2010 and we now live in Littleton, Colorado.  

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to lead all students to Christ. 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. It is a great joy to minister to college students as a family, inviting them into our lives led by Christ. 

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.
