2021-2022 Fellows Program Graduate
Alistair grew up in Sydney, Australia, where he studied economics and worked as an economist in the NSW Treasury. He later entered church ministry and became an ordained minister in the Anglican Church, gaining experience in church planting, international student ministry, and teaching in a multicultural environment.
After 11 years in church ministry, Alistair relocated to Hong Kong, working in church, education and non-profit sectors. As a pastor, he primarily looked after students and young adults in international churches. He later helped develop holistic student development programs at the Polytechnic University of Hong Kong. He also serves as the chairman of Empower Asia, a non-profit that focuses on coaching, training and mentoring young adults for career and personal development.
Alistair is currently a doctoral candidate at Fuller Theological Seminary, as part of a cohort reflecting theologically on faith, work, economics and vocation. He enjoys creating resources to help Christians connect their faith with their work, and seeks to explore the intersection between economics and theology. Alistair connected with Paul Stevens and the IMT ministry while serving as a pastor in Hong Kong, and has always admired their dedication and expertise in helping Christians live a life of integration when it comes to faith, work and all of life.
I really valued my time in IMT Fellows. I appreciated Dr Stevens’ clear and thoroughly Biblical approach to teaching Marketplace Theology, and especially thank him for his time spent joining our meetings and answering our questions.
I really enjoyed the fellowship that we shared with the group. It was great to get to know each other and see everyone grow together in our understanding and desire to let our faith shape our workplaces. Finally, a big thank you to Jimmy Pak for leading and facilitating the group, organising us all and providing many good stories as a faith and work practitioner.
