About Reed

Home / About Reed

Only thing in Scripture we are commanded to seek first.  Luke 17:23 - Kingdom of God is within you.  Kingdom Men in the Marketplace as focus phrase.  Leadership. Vision.  Life Purpose.

The purpose of this website is to help you to get to know me and share my values.  Developing Kingdom Men in the Marketplace is my life's purpose, vision and all-consuming passion.


For 40 years, I have focused on becoming Kingdom of God centered in my inner life and in my work with men in the marketplace. The intense forging of my character and life message is an ongoing process, but at the requests of my closest allies, I am attempting to make my experiences and values public in this interactive format.

This website will help you get to know me better and connect you with my work and background. I will be transparent about my failures in business and ministry and do my best to share with you how God has powerfully used the most painful experiences to mentor and grow me into the man I am today.

Feel free to click on any of the questions and topical links below to see an initial brief story that will later be followed with video blogs and more in depth articles.

Thanks for your interest,

I devoted much of my life to the non-profit and humanitarian arena and directed sustainable business and ministry projects in over 35 countries.  As well, I became a licensed general contractor, commercial builder and worked with several startup ventures in the energy, retail and financial sectors. My residential construction work took me into custom homes. On the commercial side, I worked in retail construction, tenant improvements and multi-family areas.

Passionate in all I do, I have developed a unique skill set and management style that centers on the development of people, utilization of technology, business process optimization and efficient project management. This passion transfers equally to both the sacred and secular organizations I have started and worked with.

My core values of authenticity, relationship, integrity, excellence and generosity are expressed in all I do. I love adventure and, together with many friends, I enjoy international missions, hunting, fishing, scuba diving, motorcycling and other outdoor activities. I have one daughter, Kristy - I enjoy every moment we get together!

My life goals and personal pursuit for my own personal development is to embrace the following core themes:

  • Joyfulness
  • Love and Friendship
  • Presence of God

“The most important thing about a man is not what he does; it is who he becomes.” 

... Dallas Willard

"It is not what a man does that makes his work sacred or secular, but why he does it."

... A.W. Tozer

I am available for philanthropic and charitable consulting, as well as executive process management projects.

Favorite Speech

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."  ... Theodore Roosevelt
