For 40 years, my primary focus has been to become kingdom of God centered in my inner life, as well as in my work with the church and the broader marketplace. Even though the forging of my character and life message is a work in process, my closest allies have encouraged me to make my experiences, values and what I’m learning available to others who are walking a similar pathway.

This web site will help you get to know me better and connect you with my work and background. The articles and posts herein will provide insights gained over 40 years in business and ministry as well as a candid look into the blessings and failures I’ve experienced and what I’ve learned. My hope is that these stories will inspire and challenge you and provide some helpful tools for navigating your own journey.

The brief overviews below highlight my values for life and work and some of the subjects I care most deeply about and seek to live out. They represent the core messages and missions of my life. There is a link under each overview that will take you to more in-depth content.

The rest of the website provides basic background and contact info, as well as insights into how I serve others and how I can serve you. If you find something helpful on this website and feel that I can help you in your own business or ministry journey, please reach out to me for personal ministry and consulting or for speaking and equipping for your organization.

Thank you for your interest in my journey. Welcome to the adventure.

Blog and Journey with Reed

Led by the Spirit

“And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year: ‘Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.’ And he replied: ‘Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the hand of God. That shall be to you better than light, and safer than a […]

An Invitation to Personal Revival

The most dangerous person in the world to the powers of darkness is a man or woman in love. When I think of revival, my heart no longer gravitates to the great stories of the Holy Spirit being poured out in unusual or highly visible ways on a people group or church, or a neighborhood, […]

An Embarrassing Moment in Business – BCSC Disclosure

Overview of my most embarrassing moment in business At 42 years old, I’m executive Pastor of a growing church on the West Coast as well as Vice President of a Missions organization working with children at risk in 18 countries. My passive investments in high risk, high yield ventures are supporting my growing passion for international […]

Paul Cain Memorial

  Thank you for coming today. I have been asking God daily what He wants to do in these moments of honoring the life of Paul Cain. I think we are each here for some very specific reasons, which I will elaborate on before I close. I want to begin by sharing with you some […]

Sometimes, we don’t set out to do things differently, but life just happens. My unusual journey over the past 60 years has taken me down a winding path of entrepreneurial ventures and business startups, as well as pastoral work, non-profit administration and sustainable global ministry ventures. These diverse experiences have forged me into a different man than I envisioned early on. The perspectives gained have been hard won and many are still being worked out in real life. My desire is that you will find something here to help you in your own unique journey.

The articles and posts you can access here are my life messages on business, ministry and manhood from the perspective of one who has tried to walk the ancient pathway of a Christ-follower, with both amazing success and horrific failure. You can expect me to be candid, but don’t expect me to dwell in the past.  My story is one of becoming a joyful man, of finding the deepest of friendships and also of becoming a man marked by the presence of God.

If you find something helpful on this website and feel that I can help you in your own business or ministry journey, please reach out to me in the contact section. While active in business, I do maintain some bandwidth for personal ministry and consulting.  One of my greatest joys is public speaking for all types of organizations on the topics below.

Thank you for your interest in my journey. Welcome to the adventure.


BTW, Don’t be alarmed when you see language throughout my writings referencing “The kingdom of God’ or simply “kingdom”. To begin to understand me, you will have to understand this terminology. The Kingdom of God is a biblical term referring to any place where God is in authority. In Luke 17:21 we are told where to find the Kingdom – “…the kingdom of God is within you” In Matthew 6:33 we are told how to prioritize it and what to expect from it: “Seek first the Kingdom of God, and all other things will be added to us”.

Some quotes that reflect my focus and values

“It is not what a man does that is of final importance, but what he is in what he does. The atmosphere produced by a man, much more than his activities, has the lasting influence.”

…Oswald Chambers

“The most important think 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

“What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul?”

…Jesus of Nazareth
