Rev. John C. Lin, ScB, MDiv, ThM

The Harvard Law School Program on Biblical Law and Christian Legal Studies is excited to introduce Reverend John C. Lin, as Harvard Law School’s first Theologian-in-Residence. Rev. Lin offers a wealth of experience and knowledge in theological thought and discourse, ministry to legal professionals in a global city, and an abiding interest in apologetics in urban professional and academic centers. In addition to working with the Law School community, Reverend Lin will engage across the broader HarvardUniversity community to pursue dialogue and encourage critical questions at the intersection of law and faith. At the Program, Reverend Lin will lead the Law & Theology initiatives, including offering intellectual and research oversight for research questions and new areas of inquiry.

Reverend Lin grew up in the Boston area and is a graduate of Brown University (ScB) and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary with a Masters of Divinity and Theology (MDiv, ThM). For the past 18+ years, he has worked at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City in various capacities, and for the past 10 years, as the founding lead pastor and then senior pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church Downtown NYC.  He is an ordained Presbyterian minister and member of the British-American Project. Through his work in New York City, he has developed an interest in the intersection of religious faith and work life, presenting the historic truth claims of orthodox Christianity in ways that are compelling in our modern secular age and supporting professionals at all stages of their professional lives. Reverend Lin is married to Kyoko Takahashi Lin ‘96, and they have two children.
