Bio

Jody was born in Atlanta and grew up in Tucker where he ran track and played football at Tucker High School. Jody graduated from Asbury College. He earned his master's degree from Southwestern Seminary and his doctorate in ministry from Luther Rice Seminary. For nearly 25 years, he served churches in Barrow, Gwinnett, Taylor, and Walton counties. He has also served as a professor at Luther Rice Seminary. In September 2008 - and in years since, Dr. Hice joined with 32 other pastors across the nation in challenging an IRS code that he considers an attack upon religious liberty. The IRS threatened churches with loss of tax-exempt status and criminal sanctions if political issues were addressed from the pulpit. Hice took his bold stand by formally endorsing a candidate in a Sunday message and sending a copy of it to the IRS. The IRS backed down. ​ As a pastor, Dr. Jody Hice was a leader of the annual Pulpit Freedom Sunday movement sponsored by the Alliance Defending Freedom. This yearly event challenges the "Johnson Amendment" to the IRS tax code which censors what pastors can and cannot say from the pulpit. Just last year over 1,600 pastors nationwide participated in Pulpit Freedom Sunday. As a congressman, Jody introduced legislation to abolish the "Johnson Amendment." Through his leadership in this battle with the IRS, Dr. Hice has shown himself to be a proven fighter for our constitutional rights and protector of our freedom of speech. Jody and Dee Dee Hice were married in 1983 and raised their two daughters in Walton County. Jody and Dee Dee now reside in Greensboro, Georgia and love spending time with their four grandchildren. ​In 2014, Jody Hice was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives to serve Georgia's 10th Congressional District. Jody Hice, along with fellow Congressmen Mark Meadows and Jim Jordan, was a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus. The House Freedom Caucus (HFC) gives a voice to countless Americans who feel that Washington does not represent them. They support open, accountable and limited government, the Constitution and the rule of law, and policies that promote the liberty, safety, and prosperity of all Americans. Since 2015, Congressman Jody Hice has served on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform where he lead the fight against things such as the failed impeachment attempt and H.R. 1. He has continuously sought out corruption and helped hold government accountable.
