Mike (from New Hamshire) and Rena (from Illinois) Reilly came to the ministry in stages. Mike joined staff in 1986, coming from Denver where he was a fire fighter and EMT. After joining staff, Mike served in the Print Shop and Leader Placement.

Rena, a former children’s pastor, joined staff in 1990 as Mike’s new wife. They met in Florida the previous year at a friend’s wedding.  Once she joined staff, Rena spent time teaching in Munchkin Missions and homeschooling their children.

  • Reilly, Mike & Rena Newsletter (Spring 2016) May 20, 2016 First selfie ever it was at Mile High Stadium the game the Broncos won to clinch the AFC West TitleDear Friends and Family,I hope and pray that you are doing well. For us it has been a whirl wind tour. When we left for the US we knew it was going to be a long trip around the nation during winter. Then we thought we could rest once we got back home to Australia. It was not meant to be—two weeks after we arrived home we received an email asking us to help a few other bases in Asia. ...
  • Reilly, Mike & Rena Newsletter (Fall 2015) October 10, 2015 Sharing with the Police the Good News in Manipur IndiaDear Friends & Family,If there is one thing that we have learnt over the years, it's that if a lot of people tell you that your ideas will never work, or you can’t do that here, ask God to see if it is His way of saying go for it. If it is of God then you will see it come to pass if you wait on Him to work it out. Here are a few things we heard that ...
  • Reilly, Mike & Rena Newsletter (Winter 2015) March 2, 2015 Rena Teaching Leader Seminar Dear Family and Friends, What an amazing year 2014 was. We are still not sure how we got everything done! As we look back over our year we have many things to be thankful for this Christmas season. Below you will find a few of them. 2014 found us thankful for: • The many salvations we were blessed with through the 44 camps we hosted, students’ ministry, and Boot Camp summer program and the overseas work • Being able to go to ...
  • Reilly, Mike & Rena Newsletter (Fall 2014) October 30, 2014 One of the Sunday school Lessons Dear Friends and Family, We are full steam ahead! Thanks for making that happen. These past few months are a bit hard to describe because even though we have had a lot of difficulties along the way it has been kind of fun. Again it is hard to describe. An example would be the situation with Rena’s mom, Rosie. Even though we spent a huge amount of time in and out of ER’s, hospitals and different nursing homes, it was a ...
  • Reilly, Mike & Rena Newsletter (Spring 2014) May 20, 2014 Dear Friends and Family, We are praising GOD for another year of the school running and training young people for missions. It was touch and go for a bit. But we now have eight students who have committed to be with us for two years. We changed our one-year program back to two years. The reason was that even though the students finished their homework and completed the course, we felt like they were not retaining much of the information and ...
  • Reilly, Mike & Rena Newsletter (Winter 2014) March 25, 2014 PRAYER LT CdesignbrickfinalDear Family & Friends,  We have just completed another year of training young people for the mission field. The year yielded mixed results. It was the smallest Boot Camp that we (Rena & I) have held here in Australia with 84 team members and leaders. We had to cancel two teams and switch another team’s location because of the low turnout of members and leaders. Most of the leaders were under the age of 19, which made me nervous. It truly had ...

She will be wed on November 16, and hopefully we will see some of you there! For those who are not on our email monthly updates, sorry to say you have missed out on a few good updates, one of which was the new guy who flew here to Australia to ask my permission to marry Katie. Since I did not kill him, I guess I ...
  • Reilly, Mike & Rena (Spring 2013) May 1, 2013 Hazard Reduction Dear Friends and Family, I’m in the Book of Job as I read through the Bible. I am truly amazed at how Job blessed God even with all that had happened to him. I cannot imagine how much faith that man had and still praised God or as it says “fell on the ground and worshiped”. I can barely do that with the few life disappointments that come my way. This year, we have had a few. I think it was ...
