Reni wears a few different caps as you can see. Primarily she is the Dean of Students for all things MDS, making sure the students are encouraged and looked after in the 2 year Ministry Development School that is run through Empower Church.
Reni has great organisational skills, an attention to detail and a deep desire to serve God and others. When asked what that driving factor is she says “I love learning more about God’s amazing ways and seeing Him transform peoples lives”.
Reni balances what she does in the life of Empower Church with assisting her son with his online business. Sporting a Master’s Degree (First Class Honours) in Contemporary Literature (UC), Journalism and Creative Writing skills (NCEA) and Adult Literacy training [ARAS], Reni feels that she is suited to her role here because she loves to learn and to impart what she has learned to others.
Add to all of this her family - a wonderfully multi-cultural experience, with her own Lebanese background and now with the diversity of her grandchildrens’ Maori, Taiwanese and Fijian blood lines - so as you can see, life is busy, but very fulfilling.
When Reni isn’t working alongside someone and you’re wondering where to find her. You’ll be best suited to hunt for her in her garden packed full of fruit trees and vege’s, where she’ll be unwinding and enjoying herself. Or she’ll be out spending quality time with her family… with coffee :)
