Our Staff

Scott Reed

Lead Minister

I am a passionate follower of Jesus and a sinner given new life by His grace. In my short life I have lived in four countries and at least fifteen houses. I am a St. Louis Cardinals fan, I was once struck by lightning, and I can solve a Rubik’s cube (don’t worry, those facts are not related!). I have been employed as a preacher, youth minister, stage manager, and Subway sandwich artist. My favorite thing in the world is to talk to people about Jesus.

My wife, Kendra, is way out of my league! She is 4′ 11” and loves to read, garden, watch Psych, and sing and play piano. She grew up in Britton, Michigan, and we met during our freshman year at Ozark Christian College. Our first date was on a Valentine’s Day, and I proposed almost two years later. Kendra earned an Associate of Arts in Christian Ministry from OCC in 2013, and I graduated with a Bachelor of Theology and a Bachelor of Arts in Christian Ministry in 2015.

We are thrilled to be here in Monroe, and we can’t wait to see what God has in store for this church!
