Dudley was born and grew up in a strong Catholic family of eight children in Los Angeles, California. While seriously involved in competitive athletics and mountain climbing during university, the power of Christ invaded his life and compelled him into the Kingdom and into an intimate relationship with the Father.
Janet grew up in the Los Angeles area as the oldest of four children. When she wasn’t talking to friends or reading a book, she was intensely studying and performing ballet and other forms of dance. After choosing relationship with Jesus at YMCA camp at age 13, she has been on one adventure after another. Dudley came into her life at UCLA; they married in 1979.
They have brought the gospel to the red light district of Amsterdam and preached on the streets of Paris. They have ministered to Sherpas at Everest Base Camp, in Nepal and encouraged the believers on the Island of Yap in Micronesia. They have trained the affluent business community of Silicon Valley and taught local islanders on the islands of Vanuatu. They have ministered to prostitutes in Thailand and orphans in Cambodia.
Dudley & Janet have been married for 34 years and have four children: Joshua, Jessica, Hannah & Sarah; sons-in-law Matthew and Will and two grandchildren Zahra and Emily.
They have been missionaries for over 30 years.
Dudley & Janet are currently providing leadership for YWAM Bridges of Life in the South of France. They have a passion for 24/7 prayer and worship, and love to bring the Kingdom of Jesus to the streets of whatever town they find themselves in. They love reaching out to the broken and needy (in particular the homeless and women and children at risk of trafficking/prostitution).
They teach on various aspects of intimacy with the Father that include: Life in the Spirit, Prayer Ministry, Deliverance and Healing, The Nature and Character of God, The Fear Of The Lord, Identity & The Holy Spirit.
