Hello, I’m Pastor Brad Reed of Faith Pentecostal Ministries. Please allow me
to tell you a little about myself and my family.
I was born and raised in the Lebanon, MO area. I attended Joel E. Barber and Lebanon High School. My roots run deep in this area.
I was born again in the spring of 1984, and later that Summer I received the baptism of the Holy Ghost. It was a very eventful year. In November of that same year I was married to my beautiful wife, Joleen.
We have four wonderful children, (most of the time they are wonderful), and two glorious grandchildren.
In October of 1987 I received the call to preach the Word of God. We have served in all facets of ministry. Our first pastorate was in Monett, MO. This was followed by pastorates in St. Louis, and Ironton, MO. After these we served as the State Youth Directors for the Pentecostal Church of God, in which we conducted youth rallies, and youth camps. We have always had a heart for young people.
We felt God leading us to start a new work in Lebanon in the fall of 2000. We held our first service on December 3rd of 2000, with a handful of people and have seen the hand of God bring us to where we are today.
My personal philosophy in ministry is to keep God first in everything. To
hold to godly standards, and convictions, and strive to be relevant to this generation.
I strongly believe this is possible. I believe that the entire Bible is the inspired
word of God. I believe in the literal interpretation of God’s word. I believe that
the true church is made up of all blood washed, born again believers, regardless
of name. I believe in the soon coming, imminent return of our Savior, Jesus Christ!
I believe that God still changes people.
I am looking forward with great anticipation of what God has in store for us in the future.
