Ross Schultz

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

Where I serve

I currently serve at the wonderful University of Mary located in Bismarck, North Dakota. You can easily find it as it is located on the most beautiful hill in south Bismarck. At the University there are roughly 4,000 students in undergrad and graduate programs. UMary is a Catholic University that has a wonderful community for growing in your faith while also drawing many locals to the school along with nursing students from around the country.

My Story

During my time as a student at the University of Minnesota Duluth I had an opportunity to make a lot more of my own decisions. With being given the ability to get involved with campus ministry right as I got to school I got to experience how growing in ones faith during college can bring more joy and happiness than I could have imagined. Being involved in ministry I was able to be mentored by missionaries who really showed me the love of Christ by loving me for who I was as a son of God rather than the sum of my accomplishments and failures. This granted me new found hope, encouragement, and confidence that ultimately comes from having a relationship with God. Inspired by the wonderful people who had given their lives to full time college ministry, I also felt the call to teach others about God’s love as I have been taught. It gives me so much peace and strength to know the Lord is working through me as I have stepped into this work of sharing the life giving message of the Gospel with students who are desperately in need of purpose and love. 

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.
