Pastor Barry Judd

Pastor Judd has consistently been a vibrant member of the community, serving on several municipal boards and commisions, as well as private charitable organizations.
Barry has been married to his wife, Karen, since August 1990.  They have three adult children, and one son-in-law who live in Portland and Saco, Maine and Worcester, Massachusetts. 
Karen's ministry has primarily focused on children and youth, making full use of her associate degree in Early Childhood Education.  She previously taught and superintended Sunday Schools, led teen ministries, and pioneered the Scribes' discipleship ministry now used by several congregations for students grades 3-6, and directed a free after-school program for many years.  She concurrently taught pre-school with Catholic Charities, as well as private organizations.
The Judds enjoy time in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, and their Worcester home with their son, toy poodle, Casper, and tiger-striped cat, Nina.
Pastor Barry Judd grew up in the rural western Maine town of Livermore as a member of Eaton Memorial United Methodist Church.  He came to know Jesus in a personal way at the age of eight years old.
In high school, God put a call upon him to devote his life to pastoral ministry.  Earning his bachelor degree from New England Bible College, South Portland, Maine in 1991, he served 27years as a full-time pastor in two non-denominational congregations in Kezar Falls and Biddeford, Maine.  The Lord has now called Barry to return to his roots and use his experiences to journey together and shepherd within the spiritual family of the United Methodist Church.  By God's grace, Barry's ministry has been marked by growth, vitality and leadership development with the churches he has been blessed to serve.  This is a result of urging the congregations to grow in spiritual disciplines of interpretation and application of Scripture.

"Your life will be transformed when Jesus becomes your best friend".
