Julian Reid

Julian Reid loves the Lord and is thankful the Lord loves him. He is a husband, son, brother, and friend who is based out of Atlanta, GA. Julian works both in the church and in the world. In both realms he serves in pastoral roles, be it from the pulpit or from the piano. In the church he has pastored a nondenominational congregation, Black Church at Yale, and has been a campus minister for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA. Currently Julian plays piano for worship services every Sunday, preaches on occasion, and writes on theology and music for various online platforms, including Sub:Culture, a para-church ministry focused on providing resources for college students of color. Julian also plays music outside of church, primarily jazz. He is a part of the genre-bending group The JuJu Exchange, which has one foot in jazz and one foot in everything else. The group’s first record, “Exchange,” premiered at #1 on the iTunes jazz charts in 2017.

Julian received his Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from Yale University and his Master of Divinity in Theology and Arts from Candler School of Theology at Emory University. When not playing or writing, he is enjoying life with his wife. For fun, Julian loves playing basketball, reading, and having long conversations with friends.
