I became a Christian while attending college in Monterrey, Mexico, where I grew up. As I started following Christ and saw how His gospel impacted all my life, God started putting in my heart a desire to reach college students. In 2012, I went to study for my M.Div. at Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, MS. It was at that time that I got involved with Campus Outreach and started learning about its vision to reach students with the gospel.
In 2015, I moved back to Monterrey where I started laying the foundations for this ministry at “Tec de Monterrey,” and at the beginning of 2021, we received our first full team on the field, which I’ve been leading ever since.
Since then, we have started seeing a movement grow more and more. We’ve seen students hear and believe the gospel, be discipled, and even disciple others. We also helped start a new church plant in the city near campus! My prayer is to see the kingdom of God expand among college students in Mexico through this ministry and His church.
Alex grew up in a small town in Indiana where he had always believed in God and had heard of the Gospel, but he never truly understood the significance of words like sin, grace, or good news. Throughout his time in college, many faithful people poured their lives into Alex’s, and he began to realize what the Gospel was and meant for his life. By the end of his time in college, God had grown Alex’s heart for reaching people outside of the United States. Alex has been working in Monterrey, Mexico for the past 2 years, getting to be a part of God working in him and through him. Alex has renewed his commitment to stay in Mexico and is excited to continue to witness God work throughout the Mexican culture.
Ben became a follower of Christ during high school in his hometown of El Paso, TX. When he became involved with Campus Outreach while attending the University of Texas at Dallas, the Lord began a work in Ben’s heart to show him that his faith is not about him but rather about God and His glory. God has continued to deepen Ben’s heart for the lost and conviction to obey the Great Commission as he seeks to raise laborers who will proclaim the Gospel everywhere Christ is not known. He currently serves on the campus of Tecnológico de Monterrey, hoping to help other young men similarly catch the understanding that life is about the One who gives it and should be laid down for His glory alone.
Gloria grew up in a Christian home, but didn’t come to have a personal relationship with Jesus until her Freshman year of college at the University of Minnesota. Throughout her time in college, within Campus Outreach and at the local church, she was impacted by seeing God’s heart for a Multicultural Bride from the beginning to the end of the Bible. She is overjoyed by the reality that God is bringing a remnant of every tribe, tongue, and nation to Himself for His glory and for our good. Gloria is eager to continue serving in Monterrey, Mexico as God continues to bring many to Himself.
Raised in Houston, Texas, Christina remained in her hometown for college at Houston Baptist University. At New Years Conference 2018, Christina heard the terms “lordship” and “adoption” for the first time. After learning what a genuine relationship with Jesus looked like, she couldn`t help but follow Him and make Him known on her college campus. Now, Christina is excited to take part in God`s plan of reaching the nations as she continues to make Jesus known on a college campus internationally.
I grew up far away from God, and it left me living a life of great emptiness. One day I realized how shallow my life was and I hit rock bottom. At that time, while I was in college, I met a few Christian friends (among them the one who would later become my husband) and they invited me to their home Bible study group. At first I was on the defensive because I thought I had to change before I could get closer to God. However, week after week, I was able to hear the gospel and see that, with the good news of Jesus, it was the other way around. He forgives me and loves me and it is through this work that I can draw closer to God and change. As the months went by, my best friends became those with whom I shared the same faith, my relationships began to be restored, my involvement in the life of the church began to grow, but most importantly, I could finally say that my identity and joy were in Christ. Now I serve together with my husband Luis in the church, mainly in counseling for young married couples and discipleship for women. We are excited to start a new church soon, and after months of praying for it, we believe that God is calling me into full time ministry, specifically with Campus Outreach, to share the message of hope and salvation with college students.
I was born in Venezuela and immigrated to Overland Park, Kansas with my family at a young age. I graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in Social Work. During my freshman year at KU, I started a relationship with Christ and was able to really take steps forward in my faith. God used my time in college not only to know Christ for myself but also to help others know and start a relationship with Him as well. Being an immigrant, I realized the privilege it is for me to have heard the gospel and want to share it with those around me. God has grown in me a heart for the world and a desire to play a role in Revelation 7:9. Moving forward, I am excited to share the gospel in Monterrey, Mexico and anywhere else God leads me.
