Tyler Dillon

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

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students on the campus of Auraria in Denver, Colorado. Auraria is a unique campus that allows me to reach students from 3 different universities all sharing the campus! These colleges include University of Colorado Denver, Metropolitan State University of Denver, and Community College of Denver totaling to as many as 40,000 students! The diversity of the campus is quite extraordinary, which is great for our missionary team that tries to reach each student in their own unique lanes. The CU Rec basketball courts, weight room, climbing walls, hiking trails around Denver, and trying to show the slopes that kids from Ohio can in fact snowboard are all great active ways to share in community with students! 

My Story

As a missionary, my greatest desire grow deeper in relationship with Jesus so that I may share Him greater with all students I encounter. It was not always this way however. My life has been transformed by Jesus and I want nothing more than to bring this joy to others and introduce them to the life-changing message of the Gospel. In His ministry on earth, Jesus humbled Himself to meet us on our level, taking on our humanity, and spent most of His time investing deeply in a few. I look to Jesus own example to find the best method of reaching the world. I’ve been constantly amazed by the different souls I’ve encountered on campus and working with these wonderful people has provided me with more joy than I could have ever expected. Feel free to contact me and I would love to share in greater detail this story of mine. 

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 many caring friends, family, and even strangers who have been so generous in journeying 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 would love to schedule an appointment. I’d be honored to share this mission with you.
