Daniel L. Clubb, M.A.

Professor of Hermeneutics: Bible Study Methods.

Daniel Clubb has spent his career as a pastor, church planter, disciple-maker and shepherd, serving several churches in the San Francisco and Monterey Bay Areas of California.  With nearly 40 years of experience leading and serving in multiple pastoral and ministry support roles, he recently retired from full-time ministry after serving ten years as lead pastor of Shorelife Community Church in Capitola, California.  He also spent the past sixteen years as adjunct professor at William Jessup University (Rocklin, CA) teaching Bible, theology and leadership.  He holds a B.S. in Pastoral Theology from Bethany University and a M.A. in Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary.

Daniel co-founded two churches serving them as Executive or Lead Pastor for more than 18 years.  While in Santa Cruz, he led Shorelife Community Church to become the first church to co-sponsor the Wharf-to-Wharf Race, an annual athletic event and fundraiser in Santa Cruz County attracting over 25,000 participants – including amateur runners and elite professional athletes from all over the globe.

Daniel also served as president of the Church Leaders Network, an association of evangelical churches in Santa Cruz County dedicated to “Uniting the Church & Serving the Community”.   Together, with his wife, he has led seminars and retreats on marriage, parenting and emotional and spiritual healing.  One of their ministry opportunity highlights was teaching a two-week intensive marriage and family course at St. James College in Kiev, Ukraine – just three years after the fall of communism and the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.

He and his wife, Valerie Ledford Clubb, live in Spring Hill, Tennessee. They have three married children and eight grandchildren.
