Reinhart Reiss

Class of 2020

Reinhart followed his family to Chester Presbyterian Church just over twenty years ago, soon after the ‘new’ sanctuary was dedicated.  In that time, he has served on the Mission committee almost the whole time.  


Through the outreach of this Church, Reinhart has been fortunate to travel to Honduras, Belize, and Congo, each with a very different mission. Here at home, his mission has centered on fighting hunger through the Walk-In Ministry program and Meals on Wheels; for education, Reinhart loves working with at risk second and third graders from a local elementary school; for housing, he worked with CARITAS men for two weeks at a time until the program moved the men to an on-site facility.


Participating as a choir member in both the AWE and 11:00AM worship services, Reinhart describes the music program at CPC as “fantastic over the years”.


Reinhart and his wife Lind have been married many, many years and still enjoy taking vacations by themselves! They have son adult sons I have two sons, one in western Virginia and the other one in Sausalito.  He very much enjoys working in the yard, doing outdoor activities and projects, hiking, and traveling.
