Ruben Rios

Ruben Rios

I’m not perfect, but serve a God who is.  There are things about God I struggle to understand, but one thing is sure, I have found no greater love.  I yearn for an intimate and real relationship with Him, and am simply amazed that God does too.  Plus, it’s pretty sweet that I get paid to do what I love to do; share with others the life giving water that was given to me by a man from Nazareth, who is my best friend.  I really enjoy helping people see a better picture of God, a portrait painted so beautifully by Jesus—God with us.  I am presently serving as the Senior Pastor of the Grand Advent SDA Church in Oakland, California.

I have a B.A. in Religion from La Sierra University and an M.Div. from the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University, but learning is a lifelong pursuit that never ends.  I am currently working on my Ed.D in Organizational Leadership from Grand Canyon University.

Besides ministry, nothing brings me greater joy then spending time with family.  I’m also a big hockey fan and enjoy not only watching the game, but playing it too.  I’ve been happily married for thirteen years to my beautiful wife Martha.  In addition, we’re the proud parents of two precious children; Ruben & Mia.

Lyle grew up in city of Toronto. From a young age had a passion for the stage. He met a local actor by the name of Charles Officer who recommended him to an agent Lisa Burke. Lyle began acting and was destined to be star in Hollywood. One day as he was practicing method acting auditioning for a movie roll he was caught in a battle of spiritual warfare. After that experience he felt God calling him to ministry.

In 2001 he enrolled at Canadian University College and prepared for pastoral ministry. Upon graduating in 2005 he then went on to Andrews University where he completed his Masters of Divinity. In 2008 he accepted a call to become the youth pastor at the Ottawa Seventh-day Adventist Church. He currently serves as the Associate Youth Director where he works with pathfinders, community outreach, local mission trips, disaster response and media ministry. Lyle is a bit of a bookworm who loves skateboarding, djing, breakdancing, social media, social entrepreneurship and social justice issues. He is finishing a Doctorate in Urban Ministry from Andrews University.
