He began his public schooling in Oklahoma City, although most of it was received in Stamford, Texas. While he was still a teenager his family moved to Tulare, California, where he completed his high school work.

He surrendered to the ministry at an associational meeting in Riverbank, California, in November of 1943, and was ordained a year later by the Missionary Baptist Church in Tulare, California. He received a year of Bible training in Fresno, and later enrolled in the Missionary Baptist Seminary in Little Rock, Arkansas, in 1944. While in the seminary at Little Rock he met and married Doris Scroggs. To this union were born four children: Timothy Reed, Jeanie Cash, Philip Reed, and Tammy Yarbrough, all of whom now live in southern California.

He served as pastor of Landmark Baptist Church, England, Arkansas; Holy Creek Missionary Baptist Church, Dierks, Arkansas; Pauline Baptist Church, Monticello, Arkansas; Calvary Missionary Baptist Church, Duncan, Oklahoma, and First Missionary Baptist Church of Bellflower, California, where he served for almost 24 years, going there in November of 1962.

Brother Reed was active as both student and teacher in the Oklahoma Missionary Baptist Institute of Marlow, Oklahoma, where he earned his Doctor of Theology degree. He served as president of the California Missionary Baptist Institute and Seminary for almost twenty-four years.

The associated work of Missionary Baptists was of prime interest to Brother Reed throughout his entire ministry. He served as moderator of the Baptist General Assembly of Oklahoma from 1956-1962. He was president of the American Baptist Association in 1976-77. He has also served as a writer of our Sunday School literature. He was clerk of the American Baptist Association from 1955 until 1976.

For the last several years he has served the California association and the American Baptist Association as parliamentarian. He was also recognized as an author, having written a number of books. He was widely used as a special speaker, as an evangelist, and as a lecturer.

He departed this life to be with the Lord on June 19, 1986 from his home in Bellflower. We will greatly miss this multi-talented person, especially so in the messenger meetings of the American Baptist Association.
