Growing up in the metro-Detroit area, Paul Chamberlain formed strong connections in his formative years with missionaries partnering with his home church, and he continued to develop his heart for missions by taking a Perspectives on the World Christian Movement course with his dad as a senior in high school. While interning at a small software firm in Germany in the course of completing his Computer Science and German double majors, Paul was heavily involved in the German ministry of a bilingual church and experienced firsthand the challenge of studying God’s Word in a language you know well, but that’s not the language of your heart.
Paul really enjoyed hearing a Lutheran Bible Translators presentation at his church in Fall 2019 and had the opportunity to attend a virtual Concordia Mission Institute and connect with several LBT missionaries in 2020. After graduating with an M.S. in Computer Science, he is very excited to join LBT as an IT intern in May 2021 partnering in software development with SIL and JAARS to support the work of Bible translation.
