|ABOUT THE AUTHOR|
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
Dudley Anderson was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa. He became a Christian at the age of 9 and served as youth leader for a small Baptist church near Johannesburg during his teens. After graduating from Bible College in 1990, God opened the way for Dudley to branch into Christian radio. As a musician and worship leader he developed a heart for Christian music, which became the main thrust of his radio work in South Africa.
In 1996 God called Dudley and his family to the United Kingdom where he now works as a freelance radio presenter and pastors a church in Worcestershire.
Dudley is married to Karen-Leigh and has two children, Kerryn and Ryan.
Before moving to the UK, Dudley worked for a national radio station, called Radio Pulpit and a community station called, Impact Radio in Pretoria, South Africa. From 1998 to 2005 he was heard across Africa as he served God as a radio presenter for The Voice-Africa, an international radio ministry based in the English West Midlands. Since 2005 he has been producing various programme content for independent Christian radio stations. Currently he produces and presents for UCB UK from midnight to 5.00am every Saturday and Sunday.
Dudley also runs a voice over company called, Dudley Anderson Voice Production, which specialises in voice overs for Christian and church productions.
Dudley began playing guitar at the age of 14 when he began leading the singing for his Baptist youth group and school Student Christian Association. Gradually he became more accomplished on his instrument and discovered a God given ability of being able to lead people into a place of deep experience of God though praise and worship. By the early 1980’s he was headed up the worship ministry for an Assemblies of God church in Pretoria, South Africa.
Gradually Dudley gained more experience in this ministry and, as God opened opportunities for him to meet other leading worship leaders, he progressively gained more experience until he was appointed music director for a large church near Johannesburg. Leading two worship bands, he gained valuable experience in the performing arts ministries, worship leading and worship team management.
Dudley has published articles on contemporary praise and worship and has interviewed several well known worship leaders such as Martin Smith, Noel Richards and Darlene Zschech for his radio programmes. He has helped develop local church worship teams and coached a number of worship leaders.
Currently Dudley is serving as a pastor of a house group church called, Cornerstone Family Church in Worcestershire, U.K.
