Specialties: Youth Ministry

Ruben Saenz III is the Associate Pastor of Youth and Young Families at Bulverde UMC in San Antonio, TX. He has served in college ministry, youth ministry, and new church planting. He has spoken to thousands of youth in numerous conference and non-conference youth events.

Rev. Saenz III is passionate about Christ, preaching the Gospel and doing this through youth ministry. He has worked with a team to build a youth ministry from scratch growing it from 4-300 active youth in 4 years. Rueben hopes to take what he learned through this experience and share it with others. He believes that providing and sharing resources allows ministry leaders and churches the tools and means necessary to create and build a fruitful youth ministry.

The youth are the future of our church and we are called to help lead and guide them as they venture on this faith journey.
