Mike Prude

Mike Prude was born January 31, 1955 in Artesia, NM. He graduated from Artesia High School in 1973 and from New Mexico State University with a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science in 1978. He returned home to the family ranch and eventually worked as a general manager/ vice president of a corporation for 28 years. He has since retired, got bored and started his own business.

Mike and Jessica were married on May 24, 1980. They are proud parents of three children – Ty, Mandy & Andy, along with 2 handsome, extremely talented grandsons (Peter & Luke). They placed membership at Hermosa Church in 2001.

Mike’s favorite song is “Where He Leads Me I will follow” because God has placed me not only at Hermosa, as an elder but most of all a follower of Him. Hebrews 11:1 tells me of that faith that helps me walk with God each and every day.
