A Survey of the History and Practice of Campus Ministry in China

Dr. Bao (Peter) Zhaohui, associate professor in the School of Liberal Arts, Nanjing University, Nanjing, China, will provide an historical overview of campus ministry in China, including the importance of Rev. Zhao Junying (Calvin Chao), who represented China at the 1947 founding ceremony in Boston of the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students. Dr. Zhaohui will also offer perspectives on and suggestions for contemporary ministry with professors and students.

A native of Zhejiang province, he received a Ph.D. in literary theory from Nanjing University (2001) and is pursuing a Master of Christian Studies at China Graduate School of Theology, Hong Kong. Currently a visiting scholar at Grinnell College in Iowa, Dr. Zhaohui's research and writing focuses on Zhuangzi (Chuang-tzu) one of the earliest Taoist philosophers. Other interests include Chinese Christian literature and art and the comparison of spiritual formation practices in Taoism and Christianity.

He is author of Research on the Thoughts of Literature and Arts of Early and the Middle Period of the Western Han Dynasty (2013) and “The Interpenetration between Aesthetics and Theology and its Meaning,” Sino-Christian Studies: An International Journal of Bible, Theology, and Philosophy, 15 (2013).
