Amos Alphonza Judge was born on August 5th, 1938 in Pineville, South Carolina to the late Ida Judge Wheeler. He was an only child. He was raised by his grandparents Amos and Victoria Judge who set the foundation for his Christian morals.
He was educated in the Berkley County School System and accepted Christ at an early age, joining Day Dawn Baptist Church in Pineville, South Carolina.

This union was blessed with 2 children. In September of 1964, the young family set off to New York City to begin a new chapter of life. He joined Williamsburg Christian Church in 1987 and was later ordained as a Deacon where we served faithfully.
