My name is Doug Reed and I am the Managing Director of Possibilities Africa USA. I am the only staff person outside of Africa. I am married to Jill and we have three adult children. I have been working with PA since June 2019 and I believe more in this ministry now than the day I started. I was raised on a farm in south central Nebraska, the youngest of six children. I graduated from college with a Ag Education/Ag Economic degree. After college I farmed for 10 years and then felt called into the full time ministry and served as a pastor for the next 21 years. During this time, I took classes at Bethel Seminary and earned a Masters in Divinity. My interest in missions began in 1987 when I spent a summer in rural Kenya showing the Jesus film with Campus Crusade for Christ (CRU). That summer our team of 5 college students showed the film to thousands of people with over 4,000 making a decision to follow Christ. It was a privilege to see God work in this way. But one thing bothered me, who disciples these people? How many times have they raised their hands to accept Christ? I met the local pastors who loved God, had a calling to serve God but did not have an opportunity to be trained. I saw a need, but not knowing the language or culture I did not know what to do with it. Fast forward to 2019, I was in Tanzania on a mission trip with our church and I heard more about Possibilities Africa and how they train pastors, help start small businesses and educate children. This resonated with not only my education, but also my passion. I love this ministry and I think you will as well. If you have any questions or would just like to talk, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me. Feel free to contact Doug via email .
