Our Founder

Dr. James A. Scudder is the founder and senior pastor of the Quentin Road Bible Baptist Church.  He, his wife, Linda, and two young children came to Chicago to start a church in 1971.  They had no financial support but through God’s grace were able to begin a Bible believing and teaching church.  God has blessed Quentin Road throughout the years and now Dr. Scudder is the founder of the world’s largest Christian PreschoolQuentin Road Christian School and the Chancellor of Dayspring Bible College.  Dr. Scudder has authored several books including Beyond Failure andYour Secret to Spiritual Success.  His teaching ministry, Victory In Grace, airs on television and radio stations throughout the United States and the world.

Dr. Scudder began Road to Learning, formerly named Quentin Road Dyslexia Solutions, in 2006.  Since its inception, the center has grown to over twenty tutors teaching one-on-one to nearly 100 students multiple times each week.  Hundreds of students have succeeded in school, thanks to Dr. Scudder’s vision.
