Natalie grew up in Wainfleet, ON and began attending Wainfleet BIC from a very young age. Natalie attended local schools, Winger Public Elementary and E.L. Crossly Secondary, then went on to complete her post-secondary education at Brock University. While at Brock University, Natalie completed her BA/BEd through the concurrent education program, becoming a certified teacher with the Ontario College of Teachers. Natalie also met her husband, Brad Reinhardt while attending Brock University, and they married in 2014.
Natalie’s journey to a ministry position at Wainfleet BIC Church began through her completion of two summers as an intern through Be In Christ Canada’s internship program. These summers opened Natalie’s eyes to the potential of using her passion and skills for child education in a church setting. Following the second summer, a position opened up as the Children’s Ministry Assistant at Wainfleet BIC, and Natalie joyfully accepted. Since taking on a role in Children’s Ministry, Natalie began to feel the call to enter into a life of pastoral ministry. Natalie is currently completing her MA in Ministry, Leadership, and Culture at Fresno Pacific University on her way to becoming a credentialed pastor.
