I am from Surabaya, East Java, Indonesia. I am an ordained minister of Gereja Kristen Muria Indonesia (GKMI), also known as the Muria Christian Church of Indonesia. I came to the United States in August 2019, after completing my term as general secretary of the GKMI Synod. I earned a Master of Arts in theology and peace studies from Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary in April 2022. Currently, I am serving as Mennonite Mission Network's regional director for Asia and Middle East. My role is to support our associate workers and partners in the region and work with our constituents in North America. 

I am a reflective practitioner, an administrator and a facilitator, who enjoys meeting new people, traveling to new places and learning new things. I love teaching, coaching, networking, connecting people and, of course, drinking coffee. I am deeply committed to the gospel of peace and God's reconciling mission, as well as reconciliation as mission. I am also interested in trauma healing and holistic healing, through shalom-making — holistic peace, harmony and simplicity.  

I am a bridge builder, a peacemaker and a wounded healer, who also likes riding a bike, walking in nature, writing, playing music and spending time with my family. Recently, I have been enjoying cooking vegetarian meals, after having survived a heart injury in July 2021. I am the author of the book Live Simply Leave Legacy (published in Indonesia, 2017). Let us connect! #ThinkPeace
