Eric Navas is a graduate of Cal State Dominguez Hills. It is there where he got involved with the group University Bible Fellowship, an organization that started in South Korea in 1961 by Samuel Chang-Woo Lee and Sarah Barry. It was originally associated with the Presbyterian Church but when they moved to the U S in the mid-seventies, they broke off from the Presbyterian church and became involved with the human shepherding movement.
Eric speaks about his 3 year experience in the group before realizing the physical, spiritual and financial abuses of the group. UBF has 91 chapters throughout US college campuses under the guise of many different front groups. Eric and Rachel discuss the groups' student evangelism and what makes college students so vulnerable to indoctrination. Eric gives tips on how to ensure college groups such as UBF are legitimate campus organizations and talks about his motivation to start his YouTube channel and UBF informational website ubinformed.
Before you Go: Rachel focuses in on why predatory groups such as UBF target college students and shares her own personal experience as a student encountering the tactics of campus centered recruitment.
