Peter and Lauren Dishman married at the end of 2013 and are excited to be seeding a new campus ministry through a strategic partnership between Mission to the World, Reformed University Fellowship (the missions and campus ministry arms of the Presbyterian Church in America), and the Iglesia Reformada Evangélica Presbiteriana de Colombia.
The Dishmans serve students of the National University of Colombia in Bogotá, the country’s largest, oldest, and most diverse public university. Founded in 1867, the UN has a total enrollment of over 44,000 students and a reputation both for strong research and intense leftward leanings.
Peter and Lauren hope to bring to bear Peter’s experience starting an RUF ministry in Mexico City and Lauren’s passion for all things educational (both have seminary degrees) to reach and equip the next generation with the good news of Jesus and his church and kingdom in Bogotá and beyond. In April of 2017, Isaac Nicolas Dishman joined them on the journey and Samuel Patrick Dishman joined them in March of 2019!
