Born in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and moving to Houston eleven years ago, Reni considers herself to be a Houstonian with international roots. She decided to pursue a degree at HGST in order to deepen her understanding of her faith and beliefs. Reni’s area of concentration is Missional theology and Christian ethics. Her experience at HGST has helped her gain a broad perspective on theology and Christian spirituality, and she hopes to continue to learn and put into practice the valuable lessons she has learned at seminary in her professional career.
