Meet the Pastor
Pastor Andy Reed was born on December 26, 1967 to proud parents Willis and Darlene Reed. Andy and his two sisters grew up in a Christian home with close ties to both sides of his family. Our Pastor’s early footsteps with God began when he accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior at a very young age. In his formative years, Andy was blessed to have a strong Christian heritage and being raised in church there were many youth pastors and pastors who had a great influence on Andy’s life serving as his mentors and guides.
Pastor Andy began to feel the call to lead through ministry in 1988 while serving in the United States Air Force. He surrendered to this call and entered into ministry in his twenties as a youth pastor. He has served in several churches over the course of his ministry as a Youth, Music and as an Associate Pastor. In 1998, Andy was working as the Athletic Director for a Private Christian School in Mobile, AL. It was here, Pastor Andy met his wife, Rebekah. Andy and Rebekah Reed were married on January 9, 1999. Before they were married, they accepted a position as Music Pastors at Providence Church of God in Mobile, AL. During their time at Providence, Andy and Rebekah also served as Youth Pastors and with God’s leading, grew both ministries to be thriving, growing ministries.
After serving for over six years at Providence, God began to stir something in each of them. He lead them to leave and drew them to Cross River Church, a non-denominational church plant in West Mobile. They had no idea that their journey to Cross River Church was going to lead them to planting a church in the Theodore/Tillman’s Corner Community over six years later. God’s hand has been with Pastor Andy and Rebekah throughout their ministry together and He continues to lead them as they have now stepped out in their greatest leap of faith to plant BridgePoint Church. God has ordained their steps up to this point and they know that He will continue to do so if they stay humble and continue to seek Him with their whole hearts.
Much like the vision for building that God gave to Nehemiah, Pastor Andy & Mrs. Rebekah have sought God’s will and His timing for planting BridgePoint Church. They have been given the vision to not just live a God first life but to also lead others to live the God first life. Their hearts are to not just have a building full of people, but to have a true church family. One that lives life together, supporting one another, growing with one another, discipling each other, and living a life of personal evangelism.
They have great anticipation for the incredible journey ahead and all that God has planned for BridgePoint Church. They have full knowledge and understanding that God is greater than their greatest dreams and are ready to step back and allow Him to lead them through every step. It’s going to be an amazing journey!! We look forward to updating our site with each new and exciting phase.
