dc.description.abstractThis thesis examines the histories of Chin Lien Bible Seminary and the Singapore Christian Evangelistic League, two independent Chinese Christian organisations founded in Singapore in the 1930s. The study investigates how the founders of the two institutions appropriated the practices of certain fundamentalist Christian leaders outside Singapore and were gradually integrated into global fundamentalist Christianity. The research also illustrates how the League and seminary served as extra-ecclesiastical platforms that groomed and expanded the leadership capacities of female Christians, allowing them to move beyond the defined boundaries of women's work, thus partially circumventing the double patriarchy of Chinese culture and conservative Christianity.
