Reuben comes from a strong christian family, and was adopted from Indonesia when he was a baby. Reuben has traveled all over the world and spent part of his early childhood in Asia when his parents were missionaries for Wycliff Bible Translators. Since then, Reuben has continued to travel but has called Corvallis home.
Reuben comes from a large and diverse family of nine, with two other siblings who were adopted from other countries. Music has always been a central part of Reuben’s life. It first began with piano lessons for about 3 years and progressed from there. After graduating from Corvallis High School in 2007, Reuben travelled and played music for just over 3 years professionally in a band called In Pursuit Of. During this time, Reuben was involved in the Real Life College Ministry of Calvary Corvallis.
In 2013 God called Reuben to serve at a college ministry called Engage Truth of Calvary Chapel Boise. Reuben served there in many capacities. One of his main roles was overseeing the production and administrative duties related to the college services at Boise State University. In December of 2015 Reuben married the love of his life Sarah. In the spring and early summer of 2016 (and after much prayer), Reuben accepted the position as the new Media Director at our church and moved with Sarah back to Oregon. While Reuben is overseeing our Media Teams, Sarah continues to work for her media marketing company based out of Meridian Idaho. They are true foodies, and enjoy hiking, bon fires, fellowship and being in the outdoors.
