While in his last year of High School, Captain the Reverend Judson started frequenting an Anglican Church in Oshawa where the presence of Jesus Christ in the Holy Communion was first revealed to him. Judson, experiencing God’s sovereign and irresistible grace, turned to Christ in trust while attending the Royal Military College of Canada for an Hons BA in History, English & Politics between 1998 and 2002. Later, while working as Officer Commanding Logistics at the Canadian Forces’ Special Operations Aviation Squadron, Judson heard a call to pastoral ministry: a ministry focused upon reconciling the world to Christ's love through the preaching of the Word of God and celebration of the sacraments. In 2008 he was accepted under the Canadian Forces' Military Chaplain Training Program.
Ordained as a deacon in November 2010 and placed as deacon-in charge of the parish of Loughborough (South Frontenac), Judson graduated from the University of Toronto (Trinity College) in May 2011. Ordained to the priesthood in June 2011, he was appointed as the Incumbent pastor of Loughborough. He continues to experience the fullness of the Holy Spirit and enjoys speaking to a wide variety of people about their hopes, fears, and 'God moments'. Judson remains amazed at how God's grace touches the lives of many people in many different ways, even in today's cynical world!
He has been marrried to his amazing wife Melissa since 2005 and they have two children, the second born in Oct 2012 . Judson enjoys long distance running, reading, cartography, and sleeping when the kids allow it!
