Welcome to RUF in Mexico City! RUF's first ministry outside the US serves the National Autonomous University of Mexico, one of the largest (120k students) and oldest (1553) schools in the hemisphere. RUF has been reaching and equipping students for Christ and his Church at this influential and extremely diverse university since 2005. If you are a student, we would love to see and serve you on campus! If you are a supporter, please consider giving to this strategic ministry.
Bienvenidos a la CUR, la Comunidad Universitaria Reformada en la Ciudad de Mexico! El primer ministerio de RUF fuera de los Estados Unidos, en la Universidad mas grande de Latinoamérica, la Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. La Ciudad Universitaria, con 120,000 estudiantes y una gran variedad de filosofías y cosmovisiones, ciertamente vive a la altura de su nombre. La CUR cree que ministrar en esta universidad tan influyente a futuros profesionistas, que puedan echar raiz en Cristo y Su iglesia es estratégico para tener un impacto en todo el país y la iglesia. Por lo tanto, desde el 2005 hemos estado alcanzando estudiantes para Cristo y capacitándolos para amar y servir a Jesus y Su iglesia. Si eres un estudiante en la UNAM, nos encantaría que te unas a lo que Dios está haciendo entre nosotros, y poder servirte!

Barush grew up in a Christian family with his dad being a pastor and a church planter. Since he was a teenager, Barush felt God’s calling to serve the youth, and quickly became involved as a leader in the ministry for young people of the National Presbyterian Church in Mexico, as well as in the Chi-Alpha campus ministries (Jovenes con Decision). With his wife Lorena they have been working as youth pastors for many years. Barush obtained a degree in Law at the UNAM, and currently is finishing his studies at the Presbyterian Seminary in Mexico City. Barush's desire is to keep serving university students, reaching them for Christ, and be part of RUF at UNAM as staff.
I was reached with the Gospel through RUF in 2006. Since then I served in RUF as a student leader until I obtained my BA in International Relations in 2011. Right after that I started serving as the RUF two-year intern, gaining experience and training in leading Bible studies, coordinating activities, and sharing the Gospel with other university students at UNAM. Currently, I am finishing my MA in Political Science, planning to defend my thesis this September. I have felt God’s call to take the MTW/RUF UNAM staff position for a year, co-leading with a Mexican seminary student, Barush.
