Jimmy Reed, Elder/Teaching Pastor

On being an elder at Northside Church…

“Bekah and I got married in 2011 and in September 2016 we had our first child, a son. Calvin has been so much fun to watch, play with and get to know. Parenting really makes us think about our relationship with God as our loving Father.”
