Judy Clark [Board Chair]
Grew up in church. Father was Treasurer, mother led Ladies Circle, mother and father sang in choir. I was president of Pilgrim Fellowship youth group at the same church where I gave the sermon on Youth Sunday. Oldest son Rob was President of Youth Group when he was in high school. He also stated the Youth Ministry at a small church during college. Youngest son Darren has led a middle school boys small group. Both sons and their wives host couples’ small groups for their churches.
While I always had a heart for God, I came into a personal relationship with Christ 37 years ago along with my husband. We were presenters at Marriage Encounter and held Bible studies and community groups at our home for several years.
I taught in the Physical Education Department of Gordon College, a Christian college in Massachusetts, and took courses in Adolescent and Family Counseling.
I founded, led and instructed the Judith Clark Academy of Dance, a Christian-based school of dance and performing arts for 40 years, and was on the Boards of 4 professional teaching organizations.
I have been active in 8 churches in many states. Graduated from the School of Discipleship at Free Chapel.
