Rev. Omer Reid Speaks at GMC
Georgia Military College Prep School was honored to have Rev. Omer Reid speak to the students during Black History Month. His message for the students was, “to follow your dreams and believe you can soar like the eagles, so you will not end up scratching with the chickens.”
Rev. Reid is the first of six siblings born to Liller V. and the late Milton C. Reid in Taliaferro County, Georgia. He was raised on a farm in northern Hancock County and educated in the public school system of Hancock County. Rev. Reid conducted undergraduate work in Political Science at Savannah State University. He received a Master of Theology and Doctorate of Philosophy in Clinical Pastoral Psychology from the American Theological Seminary. He was drafted during the Vietnam War and served honorably for three years in the U.S. Navy.
He married the former Barbara Stewart of Monroe County, Georgia in October 1979 and was blessed by God with three daughters and one son.
Milledgeville, GA has been his primary residence since 1985, where he has been very active in the community and served primarily on a volunteer basis on almost every board in the city.
Rev. Reid is currently the Senior Pastor of the historic Flagg Chapel Baptist Church in Milledgeville. In addition, he is coordinator of Clinical Chaplains at the Central State Hospital, Chairman of the Central State Hospital Foundation Board, President of the Milledgeville NAACP, Chairman of the Community Advisory Board of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Community Advisory Board member of the “High Achievers” project and Advisory Board Member of the Union Recorder Newspaper.
