Christian Leaders Institute Evangelical Mission to Sow the Seed Reaches Canada In Free Style for Unemployment in Canada

HENRY REYENGA JR.

Christian Leaders Institute

President;

My name is Henry Reyenga Jr. I am the last born of four children, I was born on May 14, 1961, to Henry and Anna Reyenga. My parents modeled a living faith and contentment to me, and at a young age I gave my heart to Jesus and received a calling from God to ministry.

In my teenage years, my faith was tested through “worldly” temptations, but I did not leave the path of moderation which kept me out of trouble. This did not make me any better than anyone, but those tests sparked me to the road of more surrender and a more fruitful walk with God. Different tests still come my way which keep me on that road of surrender and fruitful service.

The calling to the ministry came in my teenage years as I noticed that my friends at school were living with little hope. Many turned to drugs and sex but were really searching for God. I was seeking God and many times he placed urgency in my heart to proclaim the gospel.

Since I was dyslexic, I struggled at Dordt College, but God opened the door for me by raising up people and opportunities for me so I was able to overcome. I even was hired at a radio station called KDCR because no one else would take the late shift. This opportunity gave me valuable experience in overcoming my disability. I have attempted to bring my own struggle with dyslexia as an asset to develop sensitivity to different learning styles at CLI.

After I graduated from Dordt College in 1983 with a BA in Philosophy, I married Pamela Sue Feddema, the love of my life, on June 4, 1983. We moved to Grand Rapids, Michigan so I could attend Calvin Seminary where I graduated with a Masters of Divinity in 1987. I thank the Lord for my wife Pamela, who read many of my class reading assignments to assist me in all the reading required at the seminary. I was ordained in 1988.

My prayer is that CLI will raise up millions of Christian Leaders!

He fought the Lord and didn’t want to serve him, but God said, “You will have a son and serve me!”

Sounds like a story straight out of the Bible, but this is CLI graduate Irwin Noriega’s story.

This week he had the opportunity to tell his story LIVE on Revival Leader News and was ordained here at the CLI Headquarters.

“Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it”. That is a great verse of hope, but it could also be a verse of guilt. How?

Pastor Steve Elzinga is a professor at CLI and a pastor at Pathway Church in Byron Center, MI. He continues his series on Parenting by the Book with the next installment entitled, “Responsibility.”
