Paul Dybdahl

(B.A., Walla Walla College; M.Div, Andrews University; Ph.D., Andrews University)

Paul Dybdahl was born in Thailand and spent the first eight years of his life in Asia before moving to the Walla Walla Valley. He attended grade school and high school in College Place, and graduated from Walla Walla College in 1992.  He then accepted a call to be a pastor in the Oregon Conference, where he served for nearly five years.  His time as a pastor included a sojourn to Andrews University, where he earned his M.Div in 1995.  Paul later returned to Andrews for his doctorate and received his Ph.D. in Missiology in 2004.   His academic interest centers on the issues related to the effective communication of the gospel, especially across cultural barriers.  Paul has been teaching at Walla Walla University since 2001.

Paul and his wife, Kristyn (also a graduate of Walla Walla College), have three children: Noah, Alyssa, and Sarah.
