Rev. Dr. Jonathan Reinink

The Rev. Dr. Jonathan Reinink is a first-generation Canadian and the firstborn to Dutch-Canadian swine and poultry farmers. He is an alumnus of Redeemer University (BSc), Princeton Theological Seminary (MDiv, MA), and Boston University (DMin) with his degrees in mathematics, French, Divinity, Christian Education and doctoral studies in organizational behavior and sacramental theology. In his spare study time, he explores philanthropy and religious fundraising (ECRF; CFRE).

Jon's post-seminary career has been quite broad, including several years with the Special Offerings team at the Louisville headquarters and as a Lake Fellow at Second Church (Indianapolis). Despite the diversity of experiences, Dr. Reinink feels called back to the relationships and liturgical rhythms of congregational life, and he is eager to connect with the members and neighbors of IPC. (You should feel free to call and set up a meeting or to grab a coffee with him, too -- he'd love it!) 

When not on the road to visit family in Canada, North Carolina, or Kentuckiana, Pastor Jon and Bobby can usually be found around historic Irvington being walked by their Labra-Dane puppy, Buddy, or experimenting with their pandemic hobby, Cricut crafting.
