James A. Scudder's Bio:
Dr James A. Scudder is the son of a Methodist preacher. He was born and raised in Kentucky. While attending the University of Kentucky he trusted Christ as his Savior and immediately enrolled in Florida Bible College.
After graduating from Florida Bible College in 1971, Dr. Scudder and his wife Linda moved to Chicago to begin their ministry. It was a great leap of faith. They had no sending organization. They had no financial backing. All they had was a calling from God and two little children in diapers. In 1972, Dr. Scudder founded the Chicago Bible Church in an abandoned store front on Fullerton Avenue in the heart of one of Chicago's notoriously dangerous districts. This little church would plant the seeds of worldwide ministry.
Dr. Scudder's faith and vision have led him to several countries, including India, where he has led thousands to Christ and has shepherded a growing network of church-planting and relief ministries. He has also preached in China, Russia, Israel, and Jordan. He has led several tours of the Middle East. Dr. Scudder has had the opportunity to open both Houses of Congress in prayer and has hosted The U.S. Speaker of the House, J. Dennis Hastert at Quentin Road Bible Baptist Church.
Dr. Scudder is the author of many books, including, Your Secret to Spiritual Success, The End of Time, Beyond Failure, More Than a Miracle, Living Water, and The Lift-Off. Dr. Scudder is a frequent guest on television and radio talk shows around the country. Besides the host of Victory In Grace, he is the founder and senior pastor of Quentin Road Bible Baptist Church and the president of Dayspring Bible College.
Dr. Scudder is married to Linda and they have two children, Julie Dearyan and Rev. James Scudder, Jr. Julie is the senior editor of Victory In Grace Magazine as well as a frequent co-host of Victory In Grace radio and television.
