Vincent Bellinghiere

Hello! My name’s Vincent and I’m a FOCUS missionary.

Where I serve

I currently serve on the FOCUS Retreat’s team here at the Denver Support Center. In this role, I coach campus missionaries on how to run retreats for their students, improve our retreats-planning process, and create new retreats.

My Story

My first experience with FOCUS was in 2013 when I went to their SEEK conference in Orlando Florida with a group of student leaders from San Diego State University. Previously unfamiliar with FOCUS, this event blew me away. Never before had I seen so many young Catholics on fire for their faith, desiring to know and love Christ. I left the conference with a passionate desire in my heart, not only to seriously study and know the Faith, but also to convert the whole world for Christ.

My Junior year, FOCUS Missionaries came to serve at SDSU and I became involved in their Bible studies and discipleship. Not only did they help me grow in my faith, but they were my good friends. Desiring to continue this work of the salvation of souls, I joined the seminary with the Miles Christi Religious Order. I loved my time in seminary, but with time it became clear that this was not my vocation, and that God was calling me to serve with FOCUS.

I am very excited to be able to use both my Communication degree from SDSU and my six years of seminarian studies to serve Christ within FOCUS. College is the time that souls are gained or lost for Christ and I am so happy to be able to help them in the most pivotal moments of their lives.

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. Please consider supporting me in this great mission for the salvation and conversion of college students across the world.

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.
