Thawng Hnin Zam

Thawng Hnin ZamMy name is Thawng Hnin Zam. I come from Chin State in the most western part of Myanmar, near the border with India.

Presently, I am serving as the Principal of the Union Theological College, a member of the Association for Theological Education in South East Asia. 

I received a B.Th. degree in Madras, India, as well as a B.D. (Bachelors of Divinity) from Serampore University, also in India.

I am pursuing a D.Min because I feel the need to improve my abilities in ministry management. I am especially interested in growing as a leader. It is my hope that this D.Min. program will enhance my theological understanding of leadership.

My experience at the Shawnee campus has been wonderful. I have learned many things from our Shawnee friends. I have enjoyed living together as a community here.  The hospitality we have received from our Shawnee friends is unbelievable. What a witness! All the help rendered by different churches in Kansas City metro area, Kansas, has been greatly appreciated – something we will never forget.
