About Shijie (SJ)

I am a learner who is passionate about the intersection of Christian Ethics and World Christianity. I grew up in Singapore, a city which still inhabits me as I explore my place in (Asian) America in this season of my journey with God. I studied Anthropology and Business at the University of Pennsylvania, came to faith in Christ shortly after graduation, and was a management consultant in San Francisco before beginning my formal theological education. I studied World Christianity at Regent College, where my thesis explored Singaporean Christians’ missional-ethical responsibility towards foreign domestic workers. Currently, my research explores the intersection of race, Christian mission and ethics in the context of the San Francisco Bay Area. I am animated by the question of what it might mean for the church to live in a way that draws the world to God despite its troubled history. I live in Berkeley with my wife and two baby daughters.
