Meet Our Worship Director, Scott Reed

By Scott Reed on November 17, 2017

Where did you grow up?
Hanover, MA (about 30 minutes south of Boston)

Where did you go to school?
I graduated from Wheaton College in December with a degree in Music with elective studies in Theater.

Do you have any siblings?
Two sisters: one older, one younger

What are five of your favorite songs?
This is actually a really difficult question for me! But I’ll do my best:

  1. Pieces by Icon for Hire
  2. Someone Like You from Jekyll and Hyde, the Musical
  3. Sound of Silence as performed by Disturbed
  4. Daft Punk by Pentatonix
  5. Home to Stay as performed by Josh Groban

What is a book that you’ve read recently that really challenged, inspired, or encouraged you?
God’s Smuggler by Brother Andrew. In fact, reading that book is one of the reasons I’m at Bloomingdale Church today. I would strongly recommend it.

What is your favorite movie(s)?
Easily The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. I love everything about them, especially the soundtrack and the prop/set design.

What is your favorite book of the Bible?
Ephesians. I was reading through the New Testament earlier this year, and when I got to Ephesians I read it through in one sitting and then read it again several days in a row. One of my favorite things about it is how Paul describes God’s love in Ephesians 3.

Would you describe your love for dogs as “at times embarrassingly enthusiastic?”
Yes, yes I would.

Do you know your Myers-Briggs personality type?
I do. I’m an INTJ.

What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever done?
Certainly one of the strangest things I’ve ever done would be carrying an adult-sized rocking horse down the street while wearing a blazer and tie.

Who is someone that you greatly admire?
My great-grandfather, George Bennett. He lived such a full, incredible life of faith. He committed everything he did to the Lord and he strove to do it with excellence.
