Rev. Wendy Hudson, the founding pastor of Two Rivers Church

When we started Two Rivers Church in 2017, a dozen of us asked ourselves, “What kind of church do we want to be a part of? What kind of church does Charleston need and not have? Where are the intersections of those questions?” And there in a living room on a warm July evening, this incredible community was born. 

At Two Rivers Church, you will find a community where we live out our values every day. We are inclusive, beautiful, creative, authentic and vulnerable. Our values look like dozens of small groups where we connect over shared stories, deep study, learning new skills or simply having fun. We worship each week in ways that are engaging and deeply relevant to the needs of our time. We make space for every person in our community to be seen and valued, from the youngest of our children to those with differing abilities to every income level to people new to following Jesus and those who have been part of a church every day of their lives. 

Here we say, “You Are Beautiful” – and we really, really mean it. Everyone has a place to belong here – no exceptions. We are glad you have found your way to us. We are excited to see where God takes us together.

About Pastor Wendy

Wendy Hudson is the pastor of Two Rivers Church in Charleston, South Carolina. An ordained United Methodist pastor for 17 years, she has served congregations in both the Eastern Pennsylvania and South Carolina Annual Conferences, focusing on turnaround and revitalizing church communities. Before entering seminary, she served as a young adult missionary through the Board of Global Ministries, funded in large part by the United Methodist Women.

Pastor Wendy is the mother to three teenagers. She grew up in Lancaster, SC, where her parents still live. She graduated from the University of South Carolina with a bachelor’s degree in journalism and Wesley Theological Seminary, with a master’s degree in divinity. 

Pastor Wendy’s passion is connecting congregations to their community and inviting those disillusioned with, unfamiliar with or estranged from church into a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ. She also is an accomplice in the work of dismantling white supremacy and creating a church that is fully inclusive. Practicing restorative yoga, running at a turtle’s pace, baking endless amounts of cupcakes, and spending time with her children bring light into her world.
