Daryl Climenhaga, D.Miss.

Associate Professor of Global Studies

I teach “global studies” – the global church, focusing on the interplay of faith and culture. The mosaic of global cultural expressions of faith gives insight into the vision expressed in John’s words: “I saw a multitude that no one could number, of all nations, kindreds, people, and tongues.” Personal interests include playing soccer and chess, listening to world music (especially from southern Africa), cooking curries and playing almost endless games of Scrabble with my wife.
