Nathan Reed

Interim Executive Pastor of Discipleship and Shepherding

While I'm originally a native of Washington State, I graduated from Penn State University in 2007 with a degree in Music Education. After teaching public school for a year, I moved to DC to serve on staff at MBC and have been here ever since. As a seminary student at Dallas Theological, I have an ever-increasing desire to see our people fall even more in love with the Lord through the study of His Word. I'm amazed that I have the opportunity, along with our discipleship team and many instructors, to help others grow in being disciples of Jesus through our classroom environments. I'm married to my best friend Rachel, who also serves on staff at the Arlington Campus.
