Scholars from around the world come to Tyndale House to utilize our world-class biblical studies library and to join our diverse academic community. For over 75 years, through the generous support of our donors, we have resourced scholars to produce and publish vital research for the Church.
Theological education and ministry
One such scholar is Dr Chee-Chiew Lee, currently Associate Professor in New Testament and Senior Director of Programme Development and Advanced Studies at Singapore Bible College. Dr Lee came to Tyndale House as a Reader in 2016 as a Langham Scholar for postdoctoral research and returned in 2020 to work on a new book looking at persecution in the New Testament.
At first, when Dr Lee felt called to full-time ministry, the obvious avenue was pastoral ministry in the Church. Then nine years later she sensed a significant calling to theological education with the aim of one day training workers and theological educators for the Chinese-speaking church in Asia. Yet she was unsure how a theological education might lead to a full-time ministry. Reflecting on that season in her life, Dr Lee shared, “At the time I had no idea how biblical studies and reflection on contemporary situations might be done together.”
