Ruben was born to a Christian family in the northern region of Romania called Moldova and was raised with biblical values. He loved sports, having played soccer since he was young. He continued to develop his skills even during his studies at the National University of Physical Education and Sport, specializing in physical therapy in Bucharest. During these years, he volunteered with the Josiah Venture (JV) Edge Sports team in the Dobrogea region, in a town called Medgidia, and was involved in the youth ministry of their local church.
As a resultr, he felt God's calling to dedicate himself to a higher service and chose to become involved in full-time ministry with JV EDGE Sports. He now continues to serve in Medgidia, assuming the role of coach, mentor, and friend to the young people in that area.
His vision is to return to the Moldova region to develop the Edge ministry there, where it has not yet been established.
