William Wei

Livestream Production Assistant • (she/he/they)

William Wei came to the U. S. after they graduated high school in China in 2010, and they joined Old South Church in 2012. With the spiritual support and guidance they received at Old South, they redefined their faith in Christianity, and proudly came out as a gay Christian. In 2014, a first year in college for filmmaking, William made a video about Old South Church’s Scarf Project (a ministry of spiritual response to the Boston Marathon Bombing), and discovered their passion in making videos for ministry purposes. They then began their journey in producing media products (videos and photos) for social justice initiatives. Their work covers a variety subjects including Boston Warm in 2014, the Women’s March in 2017, GBIO actions on criminal justice reform, City Mission’s A Lift Up program for mothers in underserved households, Phillis Wheatley and her legacy, and much more.

William is currently located in Brighton, MA. They spend their down time drinking tea, listening to Opera, and relaxing with their husband Ben and their cat DanDan. They continue to explore different opportunities in bringing their faith into their visual story-telling art, and hopes to be admitted to a seminary in the future.
