MEET THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Kim Tschirret / Founder & CEO

I didn’t even realize I was a session kid until we got further along in ministry. When I was a child, I didn’t have a Hope Reins or Jesus, but I did have a horse where I continually found comfort and safety. God always works in us in ways that apply to us and what I discovered with the growth of Hope Reins was true personal healing and unconditional love from a loving Father.

My father was successful in all his business endeavors but an alcoholic at home. My childhood was void of the unconditional love of a father and developed a performance-based mentality to earn my father’s love. We shared a passion for horses but my dad always pushed me to show and all I ever wanted to do was be in the stall, take care of my horse and ride… I always wanted the relationship with my horse. This young desire has been nurtured into fruition at Hope Reins.

The founding hope for Hope Reins of Raleigh is Inspire True Hope and Real Healing. I believe in this. We want to help more people, help more kids and more than anything else glorify the Lord! As the community at Hope Reins has grown I have observed, you can truly come as you are and Jesus will meet you where you are and, he will heal you. Hope Reins has become a community of Grace that extends to the Triangle, volunteers, families and me, personally. It’s an easy thing for people to talk about but it’s another thing to see it and experience.
