Joey Chin was born and raised in Seattle, Wash., and attended the University of Washington where he studied communication and political science. During his time in college, he joined an Asian American Christian fellowship where he engaged in many conversations surrounding the intersection of ethnic identity and faith.
These conversations led to a broader interest in thinking about the integral role of social justice to the Christian faith. Joey found that in many of the spaces he was a part of people either had language to discuss social justice or a language to discuss faith, but rarely were the two discussed together. Leaning into that tension and seeking a place where the languages were viewed as inseparable is what ultimately led him to Sojourners. Looking ahead, Joey hopes to continue to learn more about God through the stories of others.
