Dr. Jin Young Choi Named to a Chair Professorship
Updated: Sep 11
Dr. Jin Young Choi became the Baptist Missionary Training School Professor of New Testament and Christian Origins at Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School in Rochester, New York on July 1, 2020.
The Baptist Missionary Training School Professorship was established in 1996, the first fully-endowed chair at Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School. The chair honors the rich legacy brought to the divinity school by the Baptist Missionary Training School, which opened in 1881 to prepare young women for Christian mission work, whether home or foreign.
Dr. Choi shared this, “I am immensely honored to be appointed as the Baptist Missionary Training School Professorial Chair. BMTS’s legacy of forming women leaders across ecclesial, cultural, and geographical boundaries has been a critical part of CRCDS’s identity. I’m deeply grateful for this affirmation that strengthens my sense of vocation and commitment as a dedicated biblical scholar and theological educator even more.”
Dr. Choi is the author of Postcolonial Discipleship of Embodiment: An Asian and Asian American Feminist Reading of the Gospel of Mark and chapters in books and other articles.
