In 1990, Reed started his teaching career and during that time he worked with a small youth group with 5 kids. The following year, God blessed that ministry and grew it to 35. It was at this time that Reed knew God was calling him to shepherd rather than just instruct. He then began his ministry career at Calvary shortly thereafter.
He and his wife, Nora, who serves in the Children's Department, have been serving Calvary for 25 years in total. Together they have 4 adult children, 4 grandchildren and one on the way.
In addition to ministry, they enjoy fellowship around table games and hiking whenever possible to explore God's creation and recharge.
