Karl Reed

Ministry Associate

Karl is the newest addition to the FLM staff, joining the team in 2019. He has been married to his incredible wife Jessica since 2004 and they live with their 5 children in Columbia, SC. Karl grew up in rural West Michigan but moved to South Carolina to complete his undergraduate degree in Theology at Columbia International University. He enjoys anything athletic and competitive, from basketball to Bocce ball, from ultimate frisbee to a rousing game of Spades (because no one in the south knows how to play Euchre). Family is everything to Karl. He loves spending his time whooping up on his kids playing basketball in the driveway, wrestling with all the kiddos on the floor, or getting as far away from them as possible to have a quiet date night with his beautiful bride.

Karl Reed Family Prayer Requests

  • Karl and Jessica: Continued prayer for wisdom and grace in parenting our 5 precious kiddos. Pray that we can keep up rhythms of date nights and times of connecting outside of the everyday parenting/family concerns. Pray for us as we learn to balance hybrid school and the family schedule.

  • Evelyn and Anthony: Both will be going to Irmo middle this year. Anthony in 6th grade and Evelyn in 8th grade. Pray for them as they adapt to the hybrid schedule (because of COVID). And for protection of their hearts and minds as they daily engage with the culture we live in.

  • Lillian: Lillian will be starting Kindergarten this year! (also a hybrid schedule) She is so excited and ready for this new stage in life.

  • Charlotte and Jackson: Will be mom’s little helpers as the big kids are at school. Pray for special times alone with mom.
