Reginald D was born in Greenville, South Carolina. He comes from generations of pastors, ministers, and leaders, going back to his grandfather, Pastor A.B. Sherman.
Reginald D grew up watching his grandfather build and pastor churches and own and operate a convenience store in his community, all of which he accomplished with only a third-grade education. He was not only Reginald D’s grandfather, but also his mentor and leader. Reginald D watched his grandfather become a prominent leader in his churches and in the community over the course of his life.
Reginald D was not the only one inspired by his grandfather, so is his cousin, Pastor Curtis Johnson. Pastor Johnson has been the pastor of one of the churches that their grandfather built and is a well-respected leader within his community. He has been nominated as one of the “Outstanding Young Men of America” and is Chairman of the Board for one of the leading anti-poverty community action agencies in South Carolina. He also appointed Reginald D as a leader of his church’s outreach ministry.
At an early age, Reginald D decided to take on the leadership mentality taught to him by his grandfather and Pastor Johnson and apply it to his everyday life. He has gone on to occupy leadership roles at various companies throughout his career.
Through his experiences in these roles Reginald D began to understand what leadership really was and how people respond to it. Reginald discovered that if you cannot build your team up to make them successful and enable them to do the same for others, then you do not really understand leadership. He believes leaders are not bosses, they are servants that make boss moves. He also believes that success comes from leadership development, spirituality, and servanthood. Servant leadership is all about making the goals and visions clear to everyone on the team and then rolling up your sleeves and doing whatever it takes to help people win. Reginald passionately believes that we are not only servants to God, but that we are also servants to God’s people.
