Joshua Schroeder

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

“Eternal life is this: to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.” -John 17:3

Where I serve

I am serving this year as the Team Director at the University of California Berkeley! I can’t wait to walk with students on campus as we grow closer to Jesus together! Go Golden Bears!

My Story

My faith has always been important to me, but I really struggled to live in a personal relationship with Jesus after I reached the age of 14. When I got to San Diego State I looked for happiness in the people I was with, the activities I was a part of, and other pursuits I thought mattered in the world. While none of these things were bad innately, I didn’t find the life that I was searching for in any of them.

Right before my senior year, I started to pray every day before the Tabernacle, and this totally revolutionized the way I lived and the way I saw my Catholic faith. I have found the joy I was searching for in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and all I want is to share it with others. I have loved getting to enter into the lives of others the way Jesus became incarnate in our world. I am amazed by the way I have seen Him work in the different souls I meet on campus.

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.
