REV. SAMUEL YUN – SPEAKER
Samuel Yun, also known as P. Sam, currently the planting pastor for EMBRACECHURCH, a new faith community in Northern California that is reaching mostly unchurched and dis-churched individuals with “the hunch that life with God is better than life without God”. His duties include preaching, vision casting, raising up leaders, counseling and setting the primary spiritual heartbeat of the community. He is a graduate of Wesley Theological Seminary (M. Div. 1995) and has been in the ordained ministry for 27 years. P. Sam is father of two, lover of all sports with a net, follower of Jesus, and immensely broken but constantly healed and strengthened by the love and grace of God. When not engaged in his all-time favorite activity (preaching!), he loves to spend extended times with his two amazing sons, Philip and Evan, watching marathon episodes of The Office, engaging in a little Yun family jam session or pretending to be a baller in the gym.
