Heireina Patrei Johnson, affectionately known as “Rein,' “Lady Rein” & "Wreck it Rein" in art, ministry, and authorship, was born and raised in San Francisco, CA to Elder Huey P Johnson and Evangelist Yuvetta Pryor. Her father, prior to his passing, prophesied over her in the womb indicating that she would be a dynamic and anointed woman of God carrying on his legacy of high profile ministry and profound commitment to the cause of Christ, and that she would be used to bring deliverance and healing to the nations.
Rein was saved, anointed, and called to preach at the tender age of seven-- a ministry prodigy often astounding those who heard her preach with her keen insight, revelation, and theological reflections on the word. Her ministry was developed in the Church of God in Christ, where she held many positions in ministry respectively, including: youth and young adult leader and minister, praise and worship leader, preacher, children’s ministries leader, Sunday school and Bible study teacher, church administrator, drama ministries coordinator, praise dance ministries leader, etc.
Called to pursue advancement in ministry, Rein was later licensed as a Reverend in the A.M.E church prior to a call to leaving it to support her pastor in launching a non-denominational ministry geared toward reaching the marginalized and oppressed. It was there that she continued her work in the ministry serving as a clergy member, minister of music, and youth and children’s leader while launching out as an independent and highly sought after inspirational artist. Her ministry in the music has enabled her to minister alongside gospel greats and has afforded her numerous accolades throughout the bay area and beyond.
While Rein grew up fully committed to ministry in every aspect, her young life outside of the church was a devastating one that included early prostitution by her grandmother, molestation,
rape, abortion, and violence. Her passion increased for the people of God, especially for those with past traumatic and abusive experiences who needed support and ministry to their deeper needs and weren’t being ministered to in the church. Fully persuaded that she could be used to minister to the hurting, marginalized, and oppressed, she began to seek God for the role that she could play in encouraging and promoting healing and transformation. In 2010, God ushered her off of a lucrative job as a Human Resources Executive and Chief Administrator and compelled her to chronicle her life’s journey toward transformation in her book, “I Am Not Garbage.” From there, God has opened numerous doors for her and established several partnerships that allow her to minister the gospel of transformation and the Word in general to multiple youth and women’s organizations, social clubs, schools, and churches.
Today, Rein spends her time in servitude to Christ through full time ministry. Prophetess Rein is a dynamic praise and worship leader, an author, a youth, family, and parent coach, a life coach, a spiritual coach, a mentor, and a highly sought after motivational speaker, Revivalist, Prophetess, and preacher who is committed to leading others in the direction of wholeness, transformation, and freedom through the work of her organization Transformation University, Her “Say Something Campaign,” a campaign that encourages others to put voice to their pain with the end goal of healing and transformation, and through her “Virtual Transformation Training Center,” an online mentoring and membership program.
Rein reaches many through transparent testimony, speaking engagements, classes, webinars, music, devotionals, books, social and other media as a means of drawing others into their complete wholeness and transformation—teaching principles of living healthy and wholesome lives free from the pain of the past.
She is also the proud mother of three beautiful boys and one adopted-daughter, LaRaya, Paris, Pierre, and Caleb.
