Peter A. Judd was a member of the First Presidency of the Community of Christ from 2000 to 2005. Judd was also an apostle and a member of the Council of Twelve Apostles of the church from 1996 to 2000.

Judd, a native of Enfield, England, became a counselor to W. Grant McMurray, the seventh prophet–president of the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (RLDS Church), in 2000, when Howard S. Sheehy, Jr. retired. (The RLDS Church changed its name to Community of Christ in 2001). When McMurray resigned in 2005, Judd and fellow counselor Kenneth N. Robinson led the church until Stephen M. Veazey was selected as the new president.[1] Veazey selected Robinson and David D. Schaal as his counselors in the First Presidency.[2]

Judd is the author of several books and articles about the Community of Christ and its beliefs. He has degrees from Graceland University, the University of Kansas, and the Saint Paul School of Theology.
