Richard Yu

Pastor

Richard has been a pastor at CCGC since 1998, first serving as the lead English pastor, and now mainly serving the Chinese Ministry.  Due to his unique background and abilities, God has used him mightily in both language ministries.  He grew up in Taiwan and came to this country after his college studies.  After working for many years in the finance industry, he sensed God leading him towards pastoral ministry, at which time he began his seminary studies at Western Seminary while serving at CCGC.
