She attended Rockway Mennonite Collegiate in Kitchener to deepen her faith. It was during her high school years that she was baptized into the Mennonite church. Wanting to strengthen her faith, she studied at CMBC/CMU with a focus on youth ministry. After obtaining her B.Th. in Theology she attended U of M where she received a B.A. in Psychology. Michelle met her husband, Conrad, at CMBC and they were married in 1996. God blessed them with 2 children who are now young adults.It was during Michelle’s time in childcare settings, volunteering in various churches, and parenting, that Michelle really came to appreciate walking with people as they grew in their faith and watched God at work in the lives of children and families. She has valued her involvement in churches and multi-cultural connections. During her leisure hours, she can be seen reading, crafting, and playing board games with her family.

Rev. Daryl Climenhaga, B.A., M.Div., Th.M., D.Miss.
Associate Pastor

Daryl divides his time professionally between teaching “global studies” – the global church, focusing on the interplay of faith and culture – at Providence Seminary and pastoral ministry at SMC. He loves the mosaic of global cultural expressions of being the church, expressed in John’s words: “I saw a multitude that no one could number, of all nations, kindreds, people, and tongues.” At SMC, he enjoys preaching and the opportunity to be part of the congregation’s mutual care. We are part of God’s family in Steinbach, and that’s good!

Personal interests include playing soccer and chess, listening to world music (especially from southern Africa), cooking curries and playing an endless game of Scrabble with Lois (his wife).

Paul DueckPastor Paul Dueck
Associate Pastor for Worship Ministries

Paul Dueck spent his first twelve years in Asuncion, Paraguay. As a child, Paul’s musical mother encouraged him to play the Spanish folk harp – Paraguay’s national instrument. Paul mastered it at a young age. At the age of 12 the family moved back to Canada where he developed his own style of playing, concentrating on hymn arrangements and folk music.

Paul studied choral and instrumental music at Canadian Mennonite Bible College (now CMU) in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and at Wilfred Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario, and Herford Church Music School in Germany. Paul has been an instrumental, vocal and choral music instructor in three settings – (1) Canadian Mennonite Bible College in Winnipeg, (2) C.E.M.T.A. – a seminary in Asuncion, Paraguay and (3) the United Mennonite Educational Institute in Leamington, Ontario.

Paul held a position of Music Pastor at the Leamington United Mennonite church until 2009. In 2010 Paul accepted a part-time position as pastor of the Windsor Mennonite Fellowship. In 2024 Paul accepted a part-time position as pastor of the Steinbach Mennonite Church. Paul and his wife Linda Winter live in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
