Matthew Kustenbauder

Matthew Kustenbauder is a MDiv student at Yale Divinity School and Yale Institute of Sacred Music, with a graduate concentration in African Studies. As an undergraduate student at Messiah College, Grantham, Pennsylvania, he first encountered African Christianity on a semester abroad in East Africa. His interest in the intersection of theology, ritual, and culture have carried him back to the continent twice since then, most recently to examine independent church movements in western Kenya. Matthew and his wife, Alice, currently live in New Haven, Connecticut.
