Elias Reyes

Hi, I’m Elias Reyes a 23-year-old Texan, hoping to serve college students the same way I was ministered to!

My Story

I am a cradle Catholic and lost touch with my faith especially when I got out of high school and into college.  Through my own faults I was a heavy drinker and drug abuser.  The summer of my junior year of college was quite possibly the lowest point of my life when one night I felt God calling me back.  Going back to Stephenville, Texas for my senior year of college I was blessed to have encountered the Tarleton Catholic Campus Ministry, this loving group of people was willing to take in a complete stranger and build them up to be the person God called them to be.  After witnessing God’s love moving through that group, and through the impactful connections formed there, I have been inspired to share the love I saw there with others!
