Pastor Carina Dawn Reed
From model, to actress, to PASTOR! Carina grew up in the Christian church, she's the granddaughter of a Methodist minister. Desiring to leave her small hometown, she started modeling at age 14, moved to NYC, then became an actress moving to Los Angeles in 1999. But God had other plans! On her spiritual growth journey, she learned about God's Holy Spirit and became a student of the Bible.
In 2008, God miraculously healed Carina from terminal cancer which set her on the path to discover Father God on personal level. She left Hollywood behind, started working in corporate American while pursuing the Lord at full speed. Carina attended and graduated ministry school in Pasadena, CA and then became an ordained minister vowing to uphold holy scripture for the rest of her life. She began working for a ministry school where she was head of all first year students and oversaw all family pastors for the school. After years of in-person service, Carina was then hired to oversee and coach members within a very well-known international prophetic ministry. She went from pastoring a few hundred (in her first job) to then pastoring a few thousand (in this job.)
Pastor Carina has a passion for outreach and evangelism. After attending a mission trip to India, the Lord started opening up more doors. She then began to lead mission trips to India. In July 2017, after coming home from her most recent mission trip, the Holy Spirit prompted Pastor Carina into a new season. It was time for her to start planning her departure from her ministry staff position and start her own academy within her own neighborhood. A couple months later, in 2017, Trumpets of Tirzah, in name, was born. She then gathered a team of godly women and they began praying and planning during 2018 & 2019. Pastor Carina spent two years with the Lord, designing a course that was specific to women living in today's world and uncovering how Jesus instructs us to live and respond to the world around us.
Trumpets of Tirzah officially launched our first 9-month course in August of 2019. It has been by the grace of God, obedience to Him, and His provision that Trumpets of Tirzah opened and is still thriving, flourishing and growing today. In Spring of 2021 we launched our online courses so women around the world could be impacted and empowered by our course material.
Pastor Carina is passionate about teaching the Bible, in context, with historical and Holy Spirit revelation. Her desire is to unveil each woman's purpose to them while making the Bible come alive. She's raising up a global army of women who are ready to stand for biblical truth while living a Christian lifestyle as Jesus modeled for us.
Pastor Carina hears the Holy Spirit very clearly. She has a highly prophetic voice and loves one-on-one ministry. She loves equipping women and leading them to identify their individual strengths and help them cultivate their gifts, talents, and anointings. She's a speaker, business coach, personal life coach, and soon-to-be author.
As Pastor Carina influences and empowers women around the world, she also serves on the Advisory Board of the Women in Leadership program at the University of California Santa Barbara. She resides in Temecula, CA with her husband and has an adult daughter who lives in Santa Barbara, CA.
