Pastor Reggie Flynn

Dr. Reginald G. Flynn grew up in Flint, Michigan and recently celebrated twenty years of service as a pastor, ten years as the senior pastor of the historic Foss Avenue Baptist Church.  Since founding the North Flint Reinvestment Corporation, a community development corporation in 2010, Pastor Flynn has led the organization through two major projects – the renovation of Eagle’s Nest Early Learning Center and establishment of Eagle’s Nest Academy, a K-6 elementary school.  In 2014, Dr. Flynn purchased the former Urban League building in northwest Flint and invested $1.5 million to renovate the facility, home to the Eagle’s Nest Academy.  In 2015, as a direct response to the Flint water crisis and departure of two major grocery store chains, Dr. Flynn mobilized residents to establish the North Flint Food Market.  In two years, the co-op has recruited close to 500 members and raised $100,000 in member equity.  The $9 million store is scheduled open in 2019.
