S.N. Among Jamir

My name is S. N. Among Jamir. I am from the northeastern part of India. I am currently serving as an Associate Pastor in Kohima Ao Baptist Church which is affiliated to the Nagaland Baptist Church Council. I am in the process of completing my Doctoral dissertation from United Theological College, Bangalore which is affiliated to the Senate of Serampore University.

I completed my Bachelor of Divinity from Serampore College, Kolkata (West Bengal) and my Masters in Theology in the department of Systematic Theology from Gurukul Lutheran Theological College and Research Institute, Chennai (Tamil Nadu). I worked as a coordinator for more than two years in one of the programmes of the National Council of Churches in India - the Ecumenical Solidarity for HIV & AIDS (ESHA).

My current research attempts to find a theological stance in reimagining a relevant ecclesia in the context of overwhelming homophobia within the churches in India. I am extremely grateful to the Mission’s Academy for granting me a short term scholarship of six months at Hamburg.
