Pastor Reid’s call to the ministry was prophetically announced at 17, and he was appointed to the ministry at age 18, making him the youngest minister in the Organisation. He was greatly influenced by his father Reverend Joseph Reid and his mother, the late Evangelist Corletta Reid. It was his mother, Evangelist Reid, who “rebuked death”, when he almost died at age eight from an attack of bronchitis. With his brothers and sisters crying, recognising that death had come for their brother, his mother wrestled all night in prayer and repelled ‘Death’s attack’, until the breakthrough came in the morning.
Suffragan Bishop Paul Reid owes much of his godly influence to his parents who brought him up in a strict godly environment, which formed the foundation of his ministry.
