Brad Hudson is a lifelong resident of Southwest Missouri. His family settled in the Ozarks several generations ago passing down to him deeply rooted conservative values. This legacy has left him with a close connection to the principles and beliefs that are such an important part of Missouri's 33rd District.
Brad grew up on his family's small farm near Cape Fair, where he still lives today with his wife of over 20 years Carissa, and their two children Bethany and Daniel. While growing up he attended a small church with his family where he later delivered his first sermon after receiving the call to ministry in 2005. He is currently Pastor to the congregation of Blessing Heights Worship Center. As a pastor, Brad understands the importance of religious liberty and will work hard to protect that sacred right.
Brad was taught the importance and value of hard work at an early age as he worked alongside his parents while taking care of their small Missouri farm. Brad entered the life of public service in 1998 when he accepted a position with Stone County, where he spent the next eleven years. In 2008, Brad made the decision to seek a position as a Stone County elected official. He won his first election with overwhelming support and then ran successfully for reelection in 2012 and 2016.
Brad was elected to his first two-year term in the Missouri House of Representatives in November 2018. He represents the 138th district, which contains portions of Stone and Christian counties. As State Representative, Brad serves as Chairman of the Missouri House Economic Development Committee, Vice-Chairman of the Rules-Legislative Oversight and Vice-Chairman of the Special Committee on Public Policy. He additionally serves on Fiscal Review, General Laws, Ways and Means, and the Special Committee on Tax Reform. Brad is also one of two House Members chosen to serve on the Missouri Tourism Commission.
