The disciples, the apostle Paul, Jesus Christ himself – all lived lives of incredible journey, gaining wisdom and stature, and sharing the Gospel with the world. Over the centuries, the same biography would apply to many humble men, passionate about spreading God’s word – including Ruben Cabrera.

It’s difficult to name the detail in Ruben’s life’s journey most worthy of the term “unexpected” – as he has experienced many rewarding and challenging twists and turns. Ruben was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico. He played professional basketball for five years and began his collegiate studies before reaching the age of 21.

When eligibility rules gave him the opportunity to play basketball in the U.S. while finishing his undergraduate degree, he transferred to Southern Nazarene University and completed a B.S. in Communications, followed by a Masters of Business Administration (MBA). 

Ruben then utilized his artistic skill in becoming an award-winning graphic designer, creative/art director, and producer in the advertising industry. 

At the same time as these rich and varying career arcs, Ruben also acted upon a more important calling that has led to more than 13 years serving the Church. Ruben has led in official capacities as a student evangelist and speaker, a youth pastor, a prison chaplain, an associate pastor, a pastor and a church planter. Ruben will also soon complete a Masters of Divinity with a concentration in worldview and apologetics from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

He and his wife Julie and their three sons, Jude, Jonah, and Asher, reside in Fort Worth, TX.
