Lin was involved in a Bible study group run by the Harvard-Radcliffe Asian American Christian Fellowship, according to a 2010 interview with the online publication StudentSoul.org. Jeremy Lin, while enrolled at Harvard University and playing for its basketball team, was co-leader of a Bible study group.

“I became a co-leader my junior year and I’m co-leading again this year. The group is a mix of believers and seekers,” said Lin to StudentSoul.org.

“Our fellowship has about 80 people and our purpose is to know God and make him known. We’re trying to do that in a way that is relevant for everyone on our campus.”

Lin skyrocketed to national, and arguably international, fame after leading his losing New York Knicks team to 7 straight wins over the past few weeks. For six consecutive games, Lin has at least 20 points – pretty good for a substitute player who went undrafted after college.

The 6’3” point guard played basketball at Harvard for all four years that he was enrolled there. After college, he signed as a free agent with the Golden State Warriors. But the Golden State Warriors and later the Houston Rockets both eventually dropped him after a short period of time. Eventually, he was picked up by the New York Knicks.

“Even though I go to church, I don’t really know many people there, but my real community is my small group.”

While with the Golden State Warriors in 2010, Lin gave a faith testimony at River of Life Christian Church of Santa Clara, Calif. He said everything in his life were blessings from God.
