Professor Larry Clement received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Oklahoma in May, 1982, his M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the
University of Oklahoma in August, 1984 and his M.A. in Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary in June, 1997. His master’s thesis was on hypersonic flow past a cone derived “wave rider” having longitudinal curvature.

In the fall of 2016, Professor Clement joined the College of Engineering at California Baptist University where he is an assistant professor. Between 1984 and 2001, he worked as a structural engineer on the C-17 Globemaster III program within the McDonnell Douglas Corporation (which later merged with and became part of the Boeing Corporation).
He oversaw development of a variety of tools to automate structural analysis procedures and processes for the C-17 program. His work included the automation of finite element pre and post-processing tools, fuselage shell and frame analysis, static test load generation tools, and a system to automate fatigue analysis for the fleet of C-17 aircraft using actual flight data.

During his time as an engineer at Boeing he served as Associate Staff at a local church, participated on multiple international mission teams and worked to obtain a Master of Arts in Theology through Fuller Theological Seminary. This work culminated in November of 2000 when he and his wife were appointed as career missionaries
within the International Mission Board (IMB) of the Southern Baptist Convention. In March of 2001 Larry and his family moved to Chiang Mai, Thailand to oversee the automation of administrative tools for the East Asia region. He later managed the team automating tools for all overseas personnel and administrative offices of
the IMB throughout the world. During this time, he also organized a variety of house church gatherings and served as a worship leader in an international fellowship.

He and his wife Rhonda have been married for over 26 years and have three adult children. He enjoys golf, guitar, computers, photography and college football (especially when games involve his alma mater, the Sooners).

I'm married with three children. I lived in Thailand from 2001 through early 2016. I play a 12-string guitar and love leading others in worship as part of a worship team. I enjoy golf. I love learning new things, solving puzzles and playing games involving strategy.

My passion is to teach the things that God has taught me. Nothing brings me greater joy than to help others discover something new about God, themselves or the amazing world we live in.

My purpose is to know, love, honor and glorify God and be used by Him to raise up qualified laborers in significant numbers to help fulfill the Great Commission.

He says, “It is too small a thing that You should be My Servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob and to restore the preserved ones of Israel; I will also make You a light of the nations so that My salvation may reach to the end of the earth.” Isaiah 49:6


"Let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near." Hebrews 10:24–25
