Dear Friends and Fellow Pastors,

I am certain you share with me in the desire to see genuine REVIVAL in the midst of our great church.

I am pleased to recommend to you and your people for your consideration as an evangelist, my friend and colleague Rev. Sherman Reed. He has been a successful Pastor and Military Chaplain for many years

Brother Reed is a man with a warm heart, a buoyant spirit and a love for proclaiming the word of God. He is the kind of evangelist who will make a positive, lasting contribution to your church. I feel certain you will find his ministry a blessing.

May the Lord continue to bless your labors for Him.

Yours, in HIS service,

Dear Friends,

In the 60's the phrase "God is Dead" swept the entire nation and nearly knocked the church off it's foundation, but revival brought us back to God. Now, the 90's has us reeling again. "Is Revival Worth It" is the catch phrase of today - REVIVAL is WORTH IT ALL.

Rev. Sherman Reed has been used by God in the Revival that he has held for us. No flamboyance, just a spirit of humbleness and love as he proclaims the Word of God. Two recent testimonies (October, 1997) "Rev. Reed made it easy to find Jesus," and "Rev. Reed gave me information that was needed for my decision to accept Christ."

I am pleased to recommend Sherman Reed as an evangelist.

In His Service,

He is an effective preacher, teacher, and administrator.

Sherman has a lovely family. His wife, Jan, is a faithful supporter of his ministry and work as well as his two children.

Sherman has served for seventeen years in pastoral ministry. I believe he can relate to pastors and laymen to help bring about a revival in your church.

Sincerely,

Re: Rev Sherman Reed
Evangelist

I have known Rev. Sherman Reed for approximately eight years. In my close workings with him, I have observed many refreshing insights. Rev. Sherman Reed is one of the outstanding men in our church.

HE COMMUNICATES PROFOUND INSIGHTS ABOUT HUMAN BEHAVIOR PATTERNS
Rev. Reed has a rich educational background and is a chaplain in the Army Reserve (Lt. Col.) The military has included him as an advisor to some of the most difficult cases of human behavior. Of course, Rev. Reed's personal life and experience as a holiness minister (much esteemed in the Church of the Nazarene) has made him valuable to their needs.

HE APPLIES THESE SKILLS TO ADMINISTERING THE MESSAGE OF HOLINESS.
His skillful manner and Christ-like spirit will be an enrichment for any church and pastor. He demonstrates a through understanding of human behavior patterns. Rev Reed knows that the basic answer to their needs is holiness, and is skillful with the tools to heal, rebuild, and refurbish people with serious emotional and spiritual wounds.

HE DISPLAYS EXCELLENT ADMINISTRATIVE SKILLS
Rev. Reed has assisted in the District Assembly with the General Superintendent, District Superintendent, and District Secretary. His advisory insights have been greatly leaned upon in making decisions that effect a great number of people's interest.

HE IS AN ABLE SPEAKER
Rev. Reed has spoken at the District Minister's banquets and directs them in a most efficient manner. His Biblical presentation is dynamically assisted by his sincere spirit.
Rev. Reed's speaking ability has a unique way of identifying with the varying levels of people's interest.

HE DIRECTS EXCELLENT WORKSHOPS AND SEMINARS
Rev. Reed's topics are broad in human relationships and in Biblical interpretation. His style is nonthreatening, yet penetrates with the inspirational thrust right into the needs of humanity and makes a way for them to respond positively and effectively for Christian living. Because of Rev. Reed's faithfulness in displaying these rich traits in Christian ministry, I highly recommend him for any planned services in your local church. I know that his unique perceptions will make an effective evangelist in striving to meet the needs of our complex congregations.

Daniel E. Wheelock,
