Welcome in the Name of the Lord!
Welcome to our Website and Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I am Rev. Dr. Darrell D. Reid, Founder/Pastor/Singer/Evangelist, called and&nordained Minister of the Gospel, first by my Lord and Master, Christ Jesus, and secondly through Universal Life Church and Seminary, Modesto California. I started out serving the Lord many years ago, at the age of 15. After accepting Christ as my Savior at a Little Country Church in Apopka, Florida, I took to the streets testifying to all who would hear me. I was also singing with my Family at that time, the Reid Family Gospel Singers, and I was also writing songs (You can purchase our CDs here at our Website Thrift Store). The Family toured all over the US and in several foreign countries, singing the praises of the Lord and spreading the Good News found in the Word of God. I met my lovely wife Katie the summer of 1965, and we were married on May 30, 1980. She was well aware of my calling, and has always supported me with her endless Love and Faith. In July of 2008 Katie became an ordained minister herself and holds double Master's Degrees, one a Master's in Education (ME) and the other a Master's in Religious Education (MRE). In 1986 we founded Happy Hill Ministries with a desire to reach out to the lost, lonely, hopeless and unfortunate that God sends our way, and to help them in anyway possible to find True Love of the Lord, as that is the only place that True Love, Hope and Happiness can really be found. We also began our Outreach Seminary to teach others the ways of divinity and how to spread the Gospel in whatever place God puts one. (You can enroll in our Online Classes on this Website) We strive to show those we meet, how to find Joy in God, Family, Life, Church, Ministry and the word of God, always remembering to teach, minister, and lead by the example that Christ gave us. God gave me a vision when I was singing with my family; that I would be instrumental in establishing at least 7 Churches in his name. My parents, Rev. Johnny D. Reid, and Rev. Geraldine Reid, shared this vision with me, and together with God leading, I am happy to say that the 7 and more have been established and God I still using us. The first Church of course is the one Jesus resides in all the time, and that is in his Children for we are the temple of the Holy Ghost and your life sometime can be the only Bible others will read, so we must strive to always be a living reflection/example of Christ. The second is the Gospel Stable Church in Apopka, Florida founded in June of 1973. We also started the United Pastor's Fellowship which met at the State Bank of Apopka in it's early days in the early 70's and still meets at different locations today. Then there is the Gospel Stable #2, #3, and #4 in Haiti, Mexico and South America. We turned the administration of these Churches over to local Christian Organizations, once completed. My parents have gone on to be with the Lord, but Katie and I, with the Lord's help, continue working on the vision, and Working the road to Glory. I Pastored the Gospel Stable Church in Apopka after Dad passed in August of 2002, and started a 6th Church Online, we call the People's Church which for a time was transformed into a physical Church in Astatula Florida until the Pastors were called away. Then when Mom passed in September of 2006, the 7th Church, the Little Brown Church on the Hill in Apopka Florida, was founded. For a time we had a "Biker Church" there. In April 2009 we chartered it as the Brush Arbor Church. We also reopen the Happy Hill Chapel and Outreach Ministers School in 2009. In January 2009 I retired from Pastoring and returned to Teaching at our School of Evangelism, Divinity and Outreach, and we reaffirmed our support of our brothers in sister Churches in Africa and others as well. (You can see them under our members section.) At Happy Hill Ministries, it is our desire and mission to come to you wherever you are, in your Home, Church, Fellowship, Clubhouse, or at a Special Activity or Event, and to bring to you our testimony and message through word and/or song and to provide full Clergy Serivices to include Weddings, Babtisms, Christenings, Counselings, Memorial Services, Bike Blessings and whatever your spiritual need may be.
