Evan Dudenhefer

Hey! My name’s Evan. I’m a FOCUS missionary.

Geaux Pokes!!!

Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at McNeese St. University in Lake Charles, LA. I cannot wait to come back to Louisiana and serve the men at McNeese!  My faith life at The University of Alabama was really formed by our male FOCUS missionaries, and I am so excited to share the ways that God has worked in my life with as many people as possible! 

My Story

Everyday, I desire to know Jesus deeper. The Lord has begun a great work in my life and is constantly inviting me to know Him deeper and showing me the places in my heart that still need to be healed. As I continue to go deeper and deeper into my faith, I have a burning desire to share the Love of Jesus with college students. College is some of the most formative years of our lives, and college campuses all across the country are under some serious spiritual attack. I hope to be like Christ to the students at McNeese and walk with them through the highs and the lows of their college experience. There is so much beauty and joy when young people come together and pursue Jesus in an intimate and loving way. We are all made in the image and likeness of a loving Father who wants nothing more than all his Beloved Sons and Daughters to be with Him in eternal life. 

Your Impact

At The University of Alabama, I was so invested in by our Catholic community and especially our FOCUS Missionaries. It was through this genuine love and authenticity of other people that I became convicted that God designed us for communion with others.  When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to help me through this mission. We can do nothing alone, and I need a strong support system of people to guide me through the next few years of mission. If you are interested in joining my support team, please let me know of the best way to reach you, and I would love to sit down and share more details about this amazing mission.
