- WEA General Assembly 2019
Dr. Lin Peirong was born and raised in Singapore. She began her career in an international Christian development organization in the human resources department. There, she found herself searching for answers on a wide array of issues, particularly the influence of Christian values on the identity of the organization as well as the overall development work that the organization pursues. This led her to her dissertation research project, countering mission drift in faith-based organizations, which she successfully defended in March 2018.
Since then, she has been working as the research coordinator and the human resources director with the World Evangelical Alliance Theological Concerns (WEA TC). She is currently working on the editing of a volume for the IRFJ (International Religious Freedom Journal) on the topic regarding the intersection between gender and religious freedom.
