Ruben grew up in Pennsylvania, Virginia, Michigan and Maryland before attending River Plate University (Argentina) to study Theology. There he met his lovely wife Silvana. He later went on to receive a Mdiv (Masters in Divinity) from Andrews University.
Ruben and Silvana have two wonderful boys, Lio and Mateo. Ruben loves spending time with his family, cooking, playing sports, running obstacle races, reading, and traveling.
A passion for God and service has led Ruben in his journey. He feels strongly about patterning with God to lead the church to become a place of refuge, acceptance and restoration.
