Dustin and Sarah Reed serve with CMF doing holistic ministry in the urban poor communities of Mexico City. Mexico City is considered the third most populated city in the world with a growing population of over 30 million people, the most marginalized of whom live in unplanned, informal settlements, or urban poor communities (slums) on the outskirts of the city. Mexico City is growing rapidly, attracting immigrants and refugees from all over the country as well as from Latin America. It is estimated that by 2050, 7 out of every 10 people will live in cities, most of which will be in urban poor communities like the ones that the Reeds work in. It is estimated that today there are more than 835 urban poor communities in Mexico City.
Dustin and Sarah work with children, youth, and families towards individual, communal, and systemic transformation. They use their passion for music and the arts to bring educational programs to children and youth, to raise up local musicians, as well as to write original songs for their ministries.
Dustin is passionate about challenging men to be better husbands and fathers, working with them in groups and weekend soul-work retreats. Sarah is passionate about serving young mothers, teaching them about early child development, nutrition, and literacy.
The Reeds have always had a heart for Latin America. Mexico City is a beautiful place full of history, culture and mountains to explore. Dustin and Sarah live in Iztapalapa, Mexico City with their two daughters Maria and Armor.
