Vincent Pirozzi

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

Where I serve

God has called me to Belmont Abbey University in Charlotte, NC. At “The Abbey”, I will be working as a Varsity Catholic missionary which allows my focus to be on athletes. I was blessed to play collegiate baseball for three years (21′-24′) and will use the talents God gave me to connect with athletes both on and off the field. In the realm of competition, performance plays a big role in the image of a player. My goal is to help athletes strive to see themselves in the image and likeness of Christ instead of their performance. Finishing my career as a collegiate pitcher, my hope is to have unity with all athletic departments and pursue them the way God has pursued me.

My Story

I was born and raised in San Pedro, CA and never left until my recent pursuit of a career in baseball. In this pursuit I began to live on my own at college campuses and recognized the struggles of a young man trying to fit into the world. As time went on, I recognized I already fit in, and it was to the love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He always met me where I was at and provided light in all my darkest times. This encouraged me to begin to reflect this light onto others and show them the love God has shown me, even when I didn’t deserve it. As my baseball career came to an end, Jesus Christ has called me on full-time mission with FOCUS to help evangelize souls for the Kingdom of Heaven. My prayer is that you will come on mission with Jesus & I to help influence the world that we are loved by God. Thank you and God Bless!

Your Impact

Answering God’s call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to trust Him in new ways. I didn’t know much about what mission would bring, but He has been there for me every step of the way. As a FOCUS missionary, I rely on spiritual and financial support of mission partners. With your help, Gods call will constantly re-center my desire and direction on The Kingdom of Heaven. If you are interested in partnering with me to change lives in ways God envisioned, I’d love to connect. Please let me know the best way to reach you, and I will schedule an appointment. The Lord is working in ways I never could have imagined, and He has called me to invite you on this journey too. Together, let’s help the world encounter the true love of Jesus Christ.
