Matthew Reed Children’s & Facilities Coordinator
Hello Life Point family! My name is Matthew Reed. As of January, I have come on full-time at LifePoint as the new Children’s & Facilities Coordinator. I get the opportunity to work alongside Mike Shamburg and Chad Roche in the youth ministry. I have the chance to share the gospel and love of Christ with 1st-5th grade Kidzlife and to help guide them towards a healthy walk with Christ.
I grew up in a Christian household, but I accepted Christ when I was in 7th grade at Hume Lake Christian Camps and have had this burning fire under me to do something in ministry. After graduating from high school, I attended the Joshua Wilderness Institute, a small college discipleship program that focuses on challenging young adults in their walks. They showed me what a strong godly community looks like and how important it is to grow and stretch. It helped prepare me and equipped me with the knowledge I needed.
I come from a very large family of foster/adopted kids. From that, God has given me this light and speech that can only come from Him, that helps me to relate to and teach others. I have been attending LifePoint for about 3 years and interned for 1 year then was part-time for a few months. I hope I get to meet all of you if I haven’t already!
