Mike Reinsel is President & CEO of Mission: Hope, formerly Rivers of the World. Mission: Hope works in remote, isolated villages, to empower local leaders and churches to distinguish their assets as well as their greatest challenges. Mission: Hope currently serves in China, the Dominican Republic, D.R. Congo, Nicaragua, and Indonesia.
The process of village transformation heavily involves indigenous leadership for assessing the village as well as providing solutions to needs, utilizing the skills and resources of the villages and individuals served.
Mike believes, “If there is to be any human transformation that is sustainable, it will be because of the action of the Holy Spirit, not the effectiveness of our development technology or the cleverness of our participatory processes.”
Before becoming the President & CEO, Mike and his family were long-time supporters of Mission: Hope, and he served as trustee on the board. Mike had a successful entrepreneurial business career. He then went on to serve as Executive Pastor at one of Atlanta’s largest churches, and most recently led the ministry of Apartment Life.
