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

Where I serve

God has called me to serve the students of Wright State University! This is my second year here and it is an absolute blessing to serve this community.

My Story

I grew up in a Catholic family but Christ was never the center of the household. I quickly fell away from the faith once I made my confirmation and continued to grow further away from Christ throughout high school. During this time I never lost the knowledge of God’s existence. Eventually, after searching through the pleasures of the world I grew tired and wanted something more – something greater than myself.

I returned to the church on Ash Wednesday of 2021, where I made my first confession in 5 years. I still was lost and did not have much direction or community in my faith life. The following semester I was invited to a FOCUS bible study and this is where I developed an understanding of who God is, learned how to pray, and found the community I had been waiting for. This experience changed my life and brought me into a relationship with God, leading me to where I am now as a FOCUS missionary.

Your Impact

I have answered the call to follow Christ and become a FOCUS missionary. But nobody is sent on mission alone. The work I will be doing is not possible without the generous support of those who accompany me on mission through their spiritual and financial support. If you are interested in supporting me, please reach out and let me know the best way to contact you.

Will you join me on mission?
