Joshua Treib

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

Where I serve

Answering God’s call to serve him and go on mission has brought me to Ohio Northern University. It is a new campus for FOCUS to be present on, so our team has many hurdles to overcome. However, we have each other and are well supported by others in FOCUS leadership.

My Story

Before going off to college myself I had not made the faith my own. It was my parents. They took me to Mass weekly, but that only took me so far. I was confirmed and raised Catholic, but I knew little of what that meant. After just a few days on campus my freshman year, I was invited into a Bible study by a FOCUS missionary. He walked with me through a simple but profound study called The Crux. Through his example and the material presented I was called deeper into my faith and just a year later when I led men in the same study, I found Christ calling me deeper still. Just as I learned more by leading a study than by participating in it, I now desire to love our Lord more by leading college men as a missionary just like how I was led by several different FOCUS missionaries.

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.
