Events Transform Inmates into Believers

A philanthropist and evangelist, Rob Rienecker devotes his spare time to volunteering for Bill Glass Ministries, which is based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He particularly is interested in the Champions for Life program, which started in 1972, because it allows him to hold regular seminars directed toward prisoners. Rob Rienecker talks to inmates about the Gospel in various prison systems across the country. Robert Rienecker and his fellow presenters, including musicians, athletes, and other entertainers, engage audience members through music and discussions such as the meaning of salvation.

Those wishing to volunteer in this crusade can choose from one of two options. The Weekend of Champions is an event that is held on a Friday and Saturday. As many as 10,000 inmates hear the evangelistic message. Besides this event, a Day of Champions is held on a Saturday. These events have seen almost half of the inmates accept Christ’s message.


Rob Rienecker Contributes to Compassion International

A strong, devoted Christian, Rob Rienecker enjoys studying
theology and often reads insightful books on Christian theology. He also
donates to and volunteers with several faith-based organizations,
including Champions for Life Ministries, Truth in Action Ministries, and
Compassion International. Through Compassion International, Robert
Rienecker supports a young man named Willison who lives in Tanzania. The
two have written back and forth over the last four years.

Compassion International has operated a program in Tanzania since 1999 and, over
the last 23 years, Compassion Tanzania has assisted tens of thousands of
children living in poverty. Presently, nearly 64,000 children
participate in the program, which is administered through 230
church-based child development centers. The majority of these centers
serve children in Arusha and nearby Babati; however, the program is
constantly expanding and officials hope to bring assistance to a wider
geographic area over the coming years. You can help fight poverty and
improve quality of life for these children by choosing to sponsor a
child. If a financial commitment is not possible, please consider
