Dave & Carrie Reid

Transitional Interim Pastor

Dave and Carrie Reid have been married for 29 years and been blessed with five amazing children. After spending fifteen years serving together with CRU(Campus Crusade for Christ), Dave answered the call to become a Senior Pastor. During his ministry, he developed a passion for seeing churches produce multiplying disciples whose lives are constantly being transformed through the gospel of Christ. Dave has most recently moved into the unique ministry of helping churches who are in a period of transition to become unified as they discover their purpose in fulfilling the Great Commission. He does this by encouraging and teaching the church to be Scripture fed and Spirit led. He has joined Forest Hills Baptist Church as the Transitional Interim Pastor in October of 2022.
