Pastor Brianna Reid
Family Ministries Pastor
Brianna was born in Scarborough and raised in Pickering, Ontario. While she was involved in ministry opportunities with her family throughout her life, she felt a specific call to ministry while working with youth at her home church. Brianna graduated from Master’s College and Seminary, specializing in youth ministry, in April 2022, and joined the team at City Christian Centre shortly afterwards.
Her favourite part of her job is the opportunity to disciple students from ages 0-18 and see them live passionately for Jesus! In her free time, she loves adding more books to her TBR pile, being outdoors, or spending time with friends. One thing about her is that she has yet to be convinced by anyone that coffee is good, but you will see her drink
lots of herbal tea!
