Joseph Yu

Assistant Pastor

Joe grew up in Seoul, Korea, and lived in the suburbs of Boston and Connecticut before coming to New York City in 2010. He attended University of Connecticut (Go Huskies!) where he studied ecology and evolutionary biology, and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, where he received a M.Div. In college he became a Christian, decided to pursue vocational ministry, and met his wife, Helen. They were married in 2010 and have a son, Allan. Joe worked with RUF City Campus Ministry in the city for four years before coming on staff at Redeemer as the Youth Ministry Director. He then worked alongside Community Groups as a Community Group Director for Redeemer West Side. Now, as Assistant Pastor at LSQ, Joe oversees pastoral care and discipleship, and he is particularly passionate about helping people see the relevance of the gospel in their lives. Joe enjoys cooking, hanging out with his family, watching nature documentaries, and dreaming about going on a backpacking trip through Asia.
