Meet the Team
REYNOLD AND KATHY MAINSE
CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
Reynold has been fascinated and drawn to pour his energy into visual media for years. He has captured exceptional moments in many nations of the world.
Kathy is passionate about seeing God transform people and nations. Her messages of “Intimacy with God”, “Unity within the Body of Christ”, and “Christ-Centered Humanitarian Aid” are clearly seen through all she does.
For many years, Reynold and Kathy were co-hosts of the television program 100 Huntley Street and led Crossroads Missions where the focus was on raising awareness and finances that served and supported indigenous ministries in many nations.
In 2001, God began to grip their hearts with John 17:21-23. Since that time, Reynold and Kathy carry a burning desire to be part of answering Jesus’ heart’s cry for unity within the Body of Christ.
Out of that passion, they founded World Embrace (W.E.). Its focus is to see the nations transformed through followers of Jesus passionately committed to loving God, embracing each other in unity and together meeting the needs of their communities.
At the Air Canada Centre in 2007 and Rogers Centre in 2008, Reynold and Kathy held Heaven’s Rehearsal. These were historic assemblies of the nations and generations gathered to worship Jesus, Ruler of the Nations. Heaven’s Rehearsal is one of the ministry activities of World Embrace
Reynold and Kathy have three amazing grown children, son-in-law, granddaughter and daughter-in-law.
