Ryan Noll

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

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at via the facilitation of domestic and international mission trips with FOCUS’s Missions Department. At the home office, I’m coaching missionaries digitally across the US in the art of directing full-fledged, life-transforming immersive experiences across the globe. Our hope is to send sustainable missions that boost locals and lead to personal transformation for all who are touched by them.

Most of the year, I live in Denver. There, you’ll probably find me at a coffee shop, exploring new places and foods, pretending to be on the Great British Baking Show, or using the most of my vocal cords to sing anywhere and everywhere. 

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire is to show college students the joy of Christ through real friendships. I have found that true friendship has an end in mind: Christ Himself and the building up of a virtuous character. I was blessed to have relationships like these while I was a student at Ball State University. Now, I want nothing more than to help my brothers experience this same, real, and sometimes gritty version of brotherhood that many men long for. I want to bring the love of Christ to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. 

“I want nothing more than to help my brothers experience this same, real, and sometimes gritty version of brotherhood that many men long for.”

This is my mission: to utilize my gifts for international mission trips to serve men on the college campus, showing them what authentic friendship with Christ really means in a global context. I want to love them radically and without counting the cost, following the example of Jesus with His own disciples.

Your Impact

The building-up of young men in the Church is a full-time job! When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to totally rely on the spiritual and financial gifts of mission partners who come along with me by their support. 

Nothing that I do can happen without the support of people like you. 

With your prayers and gifts, I am able to extend the generosity you share with me to the students — again, loving them radically and without counting cost. 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.
