Meet Ares: Assistant Construction Director!


Ares came onto the Blueprint team at the start of the new year. His role as Assistant Construction Director will entail assisting in all construction endeavors including: camps, retreats, service days, etc. We are so excited to have him on the team and can’t wait for you to meet him!

Tell us a little bit about yourself:

My name Is Ares Messina. I’m 20 years old and am originally from Beaumont, Texas. I first met Christ my junior year in high school and I’ve been devoted to following him ever since. I have a huge passion for lost kids and love spreading the gospel through camps and sharing my testimony.

What is your ministry background?

I’ve worked as a ministry site director for San Antonio Youth for Christ and as a youth/worship leader at my local church for the past two years.

How did you hear about BP?

I first heard about Blueprint in 2015 when I was part of the YFC group that came and worked over the summer, I really enjoyed it and always imagined I would make it back in some way.

What are you looking forward to being on staff with BP?

I am really looking forward to creating a lasting impact in the community. At YFC and in churches people can choose how much they want to let you in, but to enter into someone’s home and make a difference where they are most vulnerable is truly powerful.

What can we find you doing in your free time?

I love to cook and play guitar, but I will take any chance I can to do some fishing on the river.

Favorite movie?

Currently between Les Misérables and Logan (I’m a huge Hugh Jackman fan).

If you had to eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?

I make a killer alfredo pasta that I’m sure I could survive on.

Is there anything else interesting you want us to know about you?

I can walk on my hands, although I’m not sure that counts as interesting.
