The Hudsons are a dynamic couple who have been ministering together for the past 35 years.
Keith and Mary have always had a strong prophetic ministry together. The Lord spoke to them during a Pat and Buddy Harrison conference in 1979 that they would flow together in the gifts for the rest of their lives.
They travel throughout the USA and the world encouraging people through preaching and the prophetic to reach for a deeper relationship with the Lord.
Amos 3:8 says, “The Lion has roared; who will not fear? The Lord God has spoken. Who can but prophesy?” Mary holds Arise Conferences to empower women to rise up in who they are in Christ, to be bold trailblazers and think outside the box.
Keith is the author of two books, "Looking and Seeing: See Them With Your Heart Not With Your Eyes" and "The Cry: The Desperate Prayer that Opens the Heart of God'.
Mary is the author of "Joyful Parent = Happy Home" and "Smart Bombs: Tearing Down Strongholds With The Explosive Word of God".
“Arise” is the by-word of Mary Hudson’s ministry. Saved in Las Vegas in the late 70s as a radio news director, Mary and her husband, Keith, started a church in Santa Barbara, California in 1980. At the end of that decade, the Hudsons became traveling evangelists. Mary also wrote for Charisma and Christianity Today.
In 2004, Mary was called to minister in France. After two years of preaching throughout the nation, a minister told her they don’t allow women preachers in that country. Mary laughed and said, “Too late now!” Mary’s book "Smart Bombs" is about how to tear down strongholds "with the explosive word of God,” is available in French and Spanish. Her newest book, "Joyful Parent = Happy Home" is being released by Harrison House in February, 2015.
Mary hosts Arise Women’s Conferences nationally and internationally. The Lord gave her a word in 2006 that He would use her to raise up women who are bold, trailblazers, and think outside the box. Over thirty Arise Conferences have encouraged women in such diverse locations as Hawaii, Malaysia, France, Belgium, Panama, Switzerland, and the USA. Women from domestic violence shelters and drug rehabilitation homes are invited to attend and be transformed from victims to victors. Prophetic words are downloaded to Mary as she ministers throughout the congregation. Her ministry of encouragement has brought many out of darkness into His marvelous light.
As an end-time messenger, the Lord uses Keith to expose and dispel spiritual lethargy, urging and exhorting ministers and laymen alike. The Holy Spirit rends hearts and causes God’s people to once again consider their ways and turn away from self, sin, and distractions and back to the Lord.
Keith’s ministry also builds up God’s house, motivating His people to reorder their priorities; to work and live in a dedicated way, which releases God’s blessings. Under this ministry people begin to reverence the Lord, to hunger and thirst for His presence as never before. Keith demonstrates how to yield and surrender to the Lord through a life of holy obedience. His heart is to make room for the anointing.
