Tommy Reid began in full time ministry in 1953, serving for over ten years as an evangelist and international pastor. During this time, he conducted large city wide crusades across America, Canada, Asia and many other nations as well as pastoring major churches in the Philippines and Hong Kong. At twenty-six years of age, he became the pastor of Bethel Temple in Manila, Philippines, the largest church of his denomination. At thirty, he went to Korea to work with Dr. Paul Cho as he built the largest church in Christian history with over 800,000 members.
In 1963, Tommy returned to his hometown of Buffalo, New York, to pursue what he believes was the destiny and dream of his life, building a church in his home town. The first few years were difficult and discouraging, but six years later God sent a spiritual awakening to the city that literally brought explosive growth to the church of his destiny. The first week of the awakening, the church grew from a weekly attendance of approximately 130 people to over 800 people.
After experiencing this miracle of church growth, he authored a best selling book, “The Exploding Church”. As the book was read by hundreds of pastors, Tommy Reid began to preach at major pastors conferences in cities all over the world and making appearances on every major Christian television network in America and Canada.
The church in Buffalo began expanding by opening over ten branch campus sites across the city. Several major mission outreaches were built in the Philippines, Central America, Europe as well as several cities in the United States.
Tommy Reid was awarded two honorary doctorate degrees by Oral Roberts University and California Graduate School of Theology. Today, he is pursuing a new vision to teach people about their personal destiny. After authoring three other major books, he has written his latest book, “How To Live Out Of A Dream” and today lectures across the world teaching people how to hear God’s voice through the miracle of dreaming God’s dreams. He believes that the language of destiny is the language of visions and dreams. He has a passion to teach people how to hear God’s voice and discover their destiny.

Aimee Reid-Sych, the daughter of Tommy Reid was born with a legacy in Christian ministry. She began her as a professional musician traveling with a band of well known artists. One day during an amazing spiritual awakening, she was touched by the Holy Spirit and God transformed her life from an ordinary church worker into a person with a mantle of a spiritual leader. Although she had been an outstanding musician, her worship began to take people into the Presence of God in an unusual way.
At this same time, Aimee began to enlarge her teaching and preaching ministry. An amazing combination of a highly intellectual presentation of the Word of God joined with the gifting of the Holy Spirit and her unusual and dynamic speaking ability she has become one of the outstanding lady preachers in the contemporary church. She co-authored the book, “How To Live Out of A Dream”, and constantly writes articles for publication. She is presently working on her latest manuscript on worship, which is planned to become her latest book. With two other Christian leaders, Delia Roman Knox and Michelle McKinney Hammond she produces a worldwide television.
