Following 20+ years working in Central and Eastern Europe through WorldVenture, Scott and Carol were asked to return to the States to help out in the missions area at Denver Seminary. Their main ministry area consists of working through Denver Seminary to equip students and future pastors to engage the needs of the world with an emphasis on cross-cultural ministry. Scott does this by teaching missions classes (including a couple for international students), leading formation groups, and mentoring students. The Klingsmiths also assist WorldVenture by championing involvement with emerging missions movements and missionary training. Additionally, Scott stays involved in ministry in Europe by editing a missiological journal focusing on Central and Eastern Europe. Finally, Carol mentors women through their church’s leadership program as well as WorldVenture appointees and first-termers. Scott and Carol have been married for 35 years.
