Sandy Jap: Wisdom in Business

“My prayer is almost always, ‘Help me to see this situation the way you see it.'” — Sandy Jap

Listen in on our interview with business leader Sandy Jap in this special edition podcast from our Dear Mentor LIVE series.

Over the years I have appreciated the leadership, wisdom, and presence of Dr. Sandy Jap in a number of situations where we have partnered to serve students and faculty. I am impressed by her commitment to living out her life with Jesus in the classroom, in her discipline, and in the other spheres in which she operates. I am grateful for her willingness to be a part of our Dear Mentor—LIVE (MBA Edition) series last summer and for her candid and helpful engagement with issues facing Christian women in the university and workplace, including speaking to the intersection of race and gender as an Asian American woman.

She's published widely, is an international speaker and consultant, and has won numerous awards for her impact on the field.

Except for some years taken off to raise her sons, she has spent her adult life in and around InterVarsity — originally as a student and campus staff member in Michigan and currently in Atlanta. An entrepreneur at heart, she and some student leaders started the grad fellowship at Michigan State and the MBA fellowship at Georgia Tech. She loves to use her gifts of hospitality and teaching to create a welcoming place for people to connect with God and with each other. Although she rarely has time for it, you can find Karen at her sewing machine when ministry progress gets hard to measure and she needs to see tangible results from her efforts. She loves dark chocolate, good coffee, and British television.
