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 24 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.

Once he finished his schooling, the church was impressed with his talents and invited him to come on staff as our Youth/Worship Coordinator. He has completed his first year on staff at the church he has called home.
Emenim comes from a home with 3 younger brothers and says his parents were champs for raising them all.
