Dan Kimball will be the featured speaker for Impact Your World Week, Jan. 25-27, at Anderson University. The AU Campus Ministries office sponsors Impact Your World Week to offer students and the community an opportunity for worship and study with an off-campus speaker. The series is conducted each spring and focuses on Christ’s call to serve in the world.
Kimball was a drummer in a rockabilly/punk band for many years and lived in London, England, for a year playing in a band. After the band ended, he went to Israel and lived for several months studying the Bible on his own to explore the Christian faith in its historical context.
Kimball moved to Santa Cruz, Calif., and began attending Santa Cruz Bible Church. He was part of the leadership team that launched the first church plant of Santa Cruz Bible Church, Vintage Faith Church, in February 2004. Kimball currently serves Vintage Faith Church as primary teaching pastor and oversees the missional aspects of the church.
Kimball and his wife, Becky, have two daughters, Katie and Claire. In addition to his enduring love for rockabilly and punk music, Dan enjoys comic art and drives a 1966 Mustang that is slowly rusting. He is the author of They Like Jesus but not the Church and several other books that explore the emerging church in a postmodern culture.
Impact Your World Week services will be held at 10 a.m. on Tuesday and Thursday and from 5:30-7 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday night in Reardon Auditorium.
