Pastor Dr. Devin Yu
Devin moved to Sydney in 1983 with his parents when he was 16 years old. He came to accept Christ during Year 12 at Chinese Presbyterian Church which was his home church until 1993 when he and his wife Jin Jin relocated back to Hong Kong. They attended Yan Fook Church while Devin continued his career as a practising solicitor.
In 2007, Devin returned to Sydney in response to God’s calling into full-time ministry. Upon completing his Master of Divinity at Sydney Missionary and Bible College, he began serving in the Cantonese congregation as a pastor at Evangelical Free Church of Australia (East Lindfield/Chatswood). In 2018, after obtaining his PhD in the field of philosophical theology at Morling College (an affiliated college of the Australian College of Theology), Devin served as a full-time lecturer at Chinese Theological College Australia for three years, teaching church history, theology and philosophy.
Devin is passionate about Christian education and believes that God calls all Christians, including all who are in full-time ministry in various fields, to be encouraging and supportive to one another in their faith journeys.
Devin has also served voluntarily as a pastor at different churches as and when the need arises, including Chinese Presbyterian Church Burwood and Gordon Baptist Church. Devin is also an itinerant preacher, and he gives talks in Sunday School classes regularly across different denominations and independent local churches.
Devin has been a member of the Management Committee of First Light Care since 2011 and was the President from October 2017 to October 2021. Currently he is the Vice-President.
Devin is now also the Chairperson of the Sub-Committee of the Pastors Renewal Ministry.
Devin and Jin Jin have been married for 30 years and have two adult daughters who are both working and involved in Christian ministry.
