Shiv Muthukumar was born in a Hindu family in Chennai and was raised in New Delhi, India. Shiv met the Lord Jesus Christ while pursuing a graduate program in computer science at the University of Pennsylvania. After graduation, he moved to Seattle to work as a software engineer with Amazon. During this time, he sensed a call to make Jesus known and teach the Bible. He moved to Trinity Evangelical Divinity School near Chicago to receive the Master of Divinity degree. Shiv met his wife, Namhui (pronounced Naam-Hee), in Seattle. Namhui is from South Korea and grew up in the church. Together they enjoy traveling and watching meaningful movies. A key verse for Shiv is: “Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen” (Ephesians 3:20-21).
