My Bio

April 18, 2005

(Here’s my “leadership bio” that was just emailed to everyone in the church)

Have you met Jon Reid? Jon heads up our worship team, here’s a bit from him…

Hi, I’m Jon! I’m not sure what to call what I do at church. “Worship team” is a common term, but worship is not something for just a few of us; it’s a joyful duty we all share. Maybe I’m the “lead worshiper.”

Just the facts, ma’am:

  • There’s no H in Jon. It’s actually short for Jonathan
  • Born and raised in Japan. That’s also where I met Kay
  • Kay’s dad and my dad went to Japan on the same boat as young missionaries after World War II
  • Kay & I have three kids: Trevor, Shelly and Erin
  • Met Jesus: through a supernatural encounter at age 11
  • Myers-Briggs personality type: ISFJ
  • Blog: jonreid.blogs.com (my views do not necessarily reflect those of Cornerstone Vineyard, usual disclaimers blah blah)

I care about:

  • listening to music and watching movies
  • creating digital video
  • writing and recording music
  • the emerging church
  • seeing worship expressed through non-musical arts
  • hanging with my normal friends who aren’t Christ-followers
  • culture / philosophy / missiology / science / geek gadgets
  • Kay and the kids, duh!

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.

  1. normal friends who aren’t Christ-followers care about hanging out with you too 😀
    Missed you at D&D…

  2. You may be the lead worshiper..
    But you are also a worship leader. Your attitude towards worship extends beyond the songs you sing. You are an inspiration to me. 🙂

  3. There’s not one comment about being Po-Mo in there 🙂
