Board of Directors Fellowship Board & Heaven's Kitchen: Harvey Rhinehart

Phone: 813-777-4852 (mobile)

Email: hrjr@verizon.net

Bio:  Growing up in Central Pennsylvania I attended East Pennsboro High School and Cedar Cliff High School, and later served in the US Navy Reserve.  While attending East Pennsboro High School I met my lovely wife Renee.  We recently celebrated our 52nd Wedding Anniversary.  We are blessed with two children, Lorie Ann and Michael Todd.  They have blessed us with a son-in-law, Jack, and a daughter-in-law, Lori Kay.  They have each given us with two grancchildren.  We are fortunate that all live nearby, so we are together as a family often.  While living in PA I answered an ad in the newspaper for an outside sales position for Curtis Industries calling on businesses doing some type of maintenance work on vhicles, buildings, equipment, etc.  I was selling fasteners, chemicals,and terminals to name a few of the 60,000 plus items we carried.  After one and a half years I was promoted to District Manager, managing 29 sales representatives.  After only four years, in 1973, I was promoted to a regional manager and we moved to the state of New Jersey where we resided for 23 years.  During our time in New Jersey I managed as many as two regions that had 250 reps and 21 district managers.  In 1992 and 1993 Right Sizing occurred, and I was managing half of the sales force in the U.S. and reported directly to the president of the company. When an opportunity became available to move to Florida, my wife and son said yes, with my daughter and her husband already living in Tampa.  I worked for a number of years covering Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and a few years in Puerto Rico until I retired in 2006 after 40 years with what became Barnes Distribution.  Renee and I started attending Holy Trinity Lutheran Church prior to my retirement.  However, once we retired we decided it was time to give back.  Our mission is Heaven's Kitchen.  Renee and I volunteer our time cooking, baking and managing Heaven's Kitchen, our commercial church kitchen cooking for both church and community events and organizations.  We're blessed to have a number of outstanding volunteers to help us out.  One or both of us volunteer and are active members of the Fern Garden Club, Sertoma, Christian Social Services, and Support Our Troops, doing what we can to help those in need.

Administrative Assistant: Lorie Grisley

Phone: 813- 949-7173 (church office)

Email: htlutzoffice@verizon.net

Bio: I was born in Enola, Pennsylvania where I lived until my parents (Harvey and Renee Rhinehart) relocated to Englishtown, New Jersey.   I married my husband Jack in 1988 and worked as a cosmetologist for 10 years until we relocated to Tampa, Florida in 1993.  In Florida I was an office manager for a prominent salon in Tampa for several years until our two children were born. I remained at home for several years to care for our children, Tyler and Ashley.  Upon moving to Odessa we became members of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in 2001.  After our children were older I returned to work as an office manager for three sister tutoring companies (on-site, in-home, and spanish speaking) that provided state funded supplemental education services for title one school children.  I was responsible for payroll for over 250 tutors, and program related set up for 13 counties.  When the state funded program ceased, I began as administrative assistant for Holy Trinity in 2013.
