Bien Rev, who goes by Bienz, grew up in Lapu-Lapu City, Philippines with his parents and three brothers. Since both of his parents work long hours in the government offices, his grandmother primarily raised him, bringing him to church and teaching him how to live an honest life. He says of her, “She was good to everyone, no one has ever said anything bad about her… I miss her very much.” When she passed away from breast cancer when Bienz was just ten years old, something in him flipped. He says he became more disobedient and chose to live a life opposite of the way his grandmother had raised him.

However, things began to change when he went to Young Life camp for the first time in 2011. There he decided to accept and follow Jesus. He says the Young Life leaders gave him the support and guidance necessary to overcome his depression. Thankful for the direction he received from Young Life, he became a leader himself and has now been mentoring younger students since 2012. His area director describes Bienz as hard working, mature, and a strong model of character to young people.

As a Developing Global Leader, Bienz is studying information technology. After graduation, he hopes to go on staff with Young Life full-time and use his expertise in the computer field to help his area. He is excited for the opportunity to be studying in university and is passionate and dedicated to serving God through Young Life as an effective leader.
