Jud Reasons was born in Nashville, TN on June 17, 1965. Jud grew up with two older brothers and parents who were both public school teachers. His home church of Woodmont Baptist Church played a very big role in his spiritual development. Jud accepted Christ at the age of 9 following a week of Vacation Bible School. He accepted a call into ministry during his 10 th grade year in high school while on a mission trip with Woodmont Baptist Church to Saginaw, Michigan.

While attending Mississippi College, Jud majored in Business Administration. It was during these formative years that he truly surrendered to the calling that God had placed on his life. During his sophomore year, he met Anne while on a Baptist Student Union Retreat. They were married May 14, 1988, which was also Jud’s college graduation day! The graduation ceremony was at 2PM and the wedding ceremony was at 7PM. With the birth of Blake in 1992 and Kyle in 1994, the Reasons family has grown!
