Robert Blanchard

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

Where I serve

God has called me to serve the Greek Students at Vanderbilt University. You’ll typically find me hanging out at coffee shops around Nashville, the Frassati House, or high-fiving people around campus. I have a pretty cool story about how Jesus has changed my life — I think you should hear it sometime! Come find me and I’d love to share it with you.

My Story

Saint Augustine beautifully captures how the Lord crashed into my life – “You called, shouted, broke through my deafness; You flared, blazed, banished my blindness”. The Lord careened into my world two weeks before I was set to graduate from Oklahoma State University. Three years of grad school and working for a startup, I still had this hunger that only He could satiate. I have the incredible opportunity to share what I received four years ago and want nothing more than to make Christ Jesus known. 

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.
