Rocco and Mary Hutter

Hi! We are Rocco and Mary Hutter and we can’t wait to talk to you about Jesus!

Where We serve

We have been called to serve at Valparaiso University in North-western Indiana and cannot wait to be able to be on campus with students and our team! Valparaiso University is a small Lutheran college that actually has a large percentage of nominally Catholic students. Therefore, most of our work will be to convict these students of the truths of their faith and invite them into a deeper relationship with God.IMG 1736

Our Story

We met each other and God at Michigan Technological University thanks in large part to our campus ministry and wonderful friends. While there we were participants and leaders in bible study and discipleship which played a large part in the deepening of both of our faith lives. We are so excited to be able to work as missionaries, to be able to be friends with students on campus, and to bring them further into knowledge and love of God. We are especially excited to show this love to them through our example and by welcoming them into our lives.

We have been dating since the fall of 2021 and finally got married in the summer of 2023 surrounded by our wonderful family and friends. One of our deepest desires is to be able to invite students into our marriage and family life to hopefully show them a good, holy, and Catholic marriage.

Your Impact

As FOCUS missionaries we have the privilege of relying on God and on the financial support of others to be able to work and minister to students on campus full-time. We do truly view our mission partners as being on mission with us and indeed as a part of our missionary family. We would be honored if you would be willing to consider joining us on this mission through your financial support and we would love to talk to you more about our mission with FOCUS. Just send us an email or give us a call and we would love to talk to you about Jesus!
