Ryan Clark

Howdy folks! I’m Ryan and I’m a FOCUS Missionary!

Where I serve

I have been called to serve at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville to be a light and friend to college students while helping them find true joy in living out their Catholic faith! I will be serving with three other missionaries.

This is our team! (L-R: Me, Emma, Joe, Julia)

My Story

Since my reconversion to Jesus Christ, my final semester at Iowa State University, I have desired to better know our Lord and make Him known by inviting others to deepen their faith. For the last year I chose to pursue a career in the agricultural industry helping farmers feed the world, however this past spring I felt the Lord place a call on my heart to return to a college campus and walk with young men as they pursue Christ and transform their lives. I have seen this transformation occur in my own life and desire nothing more than to share this joy with others through the life-changing message of the Gospel.

Your Impact

When I decided to answer the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to partake in this mission together. If you are interested in partnering with me please let me know of the best way to contact you and I will schedule an appointment. I’d be honored to share this mission with you.
