Reverend Patrick Reid is the founder and lead pastor of Cornerstone Baptist Tabernacle based in Toronto, Ontario. He was born in Barbados. He was converted at age seventeen and felt the call to Christian ministry. He is a graduate of Caribbean Wesleyan College, Barbados, and of the College of Staten Island, New York.
