Get Your Spirit in Shape: Meet Bishop Ruben Saenz Jr.


“Within 90 days we had sold our business, our home, moved to Dallas, and I was sitting in Billy Abraham’s ‘The Philosophy of Theology’ class wondering, ‘How in the world did I get here?’” recalls Bishop Ruben Saenz of the Great Plains Annual Conference. He started his career as a high school teacher, football coach, and business owner, but God had other plans. When he finally accepted the call to ordained ministry, his life quickly changed.
