Taking the Pulpit to Wall Street
Rev. Medgar L. Reid tapped by N.Y. Investment Banking Firm
The Rev. Medgar L. Reid was recently appointed as the Private Placement and New Projects Advisor for The Wall Street Organization, Inc.® (WSO), a private, New York-based boutique investment bank. Locally, Rev. Reid wears many hats, serving as a business consultant, motivational speaker, psychiatric wellness advocate, and Professional Trauma & Geriatric Chaplain. Rev. Reid is also the Pastor and Founder of Open Secret Community Church & Ministries, which he describes as a “church without walls”. The Church’s initial worship service will take place on Sunday November 11, 2012. With his new appointment, Rev. Reid is now stretching these walls all the way to Wall Street, and considers the post as a “divine appointment.” “I talked to the panel of advisors, who were mostly out of New York, California, Arizona and Tennessee, and provided them with my input as to what I could do, and what I would bring to the table spiritually. My whole philosophy is that Wall Street is run on greed and fear, as opposed to everyone can win.” He continued, “Currently, the economy is based upon fear. Fear is a spirit. God did not give us a spirit of fear, but love and a sound mind. If we let go of the fear, the economy will turn around. I won them over with my spiritual philosophy.”
