Bill & Elizabeth Hudson
Pastor Bill was born and raised a Southern Baptist in South Mississippi. In 1986, he had a spiritual awakening and began an intense search for truth. Two years following, Bill had a tremendous Born Again experience and, soon afterwards, received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and was water baptized. In 1990, he began to hold a Bible study in his home which grew to a church in Lumberton, MS. He pastored this church for six years.
After 32 years building and growing a family chain of extreme value retail stores in Southern Mississippi, Bill retired as CEO in 2009, having grown the business to 45 stores and over 1,000 employees. Thereafter, he moved to Southern Indiana where he entered into ministry full-time and began preaching and teaching God’s Word locally, nationally, and internationally.
Recently, the LORD called Bill to be a part of a new start-up ministry here in Southern Indiana - Return Ministries. On March 29, 2015, Return Ministries held its first service in Clarksville, IN.
Bill has three children - Crystal, Cy, and Levi - and two granddaughters - Sadie Rose and Sophia Ann.
Pastor Elizabeth was born and raised in a loving, Christian home in Dallas, Texas. Being surrounded with a Pentecostal background – she was filled with the Holy Spirit and baptized at a very young age. Her life has been blessed with parents and siblings who love and support her and, most importantly, love Jesus!
Elizabeth attended the University of Texas at Arlington where she acquired a Bachelor’s Degree in English/Elementary education. In 1987, after graduating college, she moved to the Southern Indiana area to live with her sister. After getting a teaching job, she attended Indiana University Southeast and acquired a Master’s Degree in Education. Elizabeth taught in the elementary schools for 15 years.
Elizabeth is very blessed to have a wonderful husband who loves the Lord with all his heart and shares with her his three wonderful children and two amazing granddaughters.
