CY Yan can be best described as a "missionary-pastor". He currently serves as Director for Connections East Asia at OMF Canada - a mission that traces its origin to China Inland Mission, founded by Hudson Taylor in the year 1865. In this capacity, he seeks to come alongside of East Asian diasporas across the country, to help build indigenous biblical church movements in their midst, and to see them become missionary sending forces. CY himself came as an immigrant to Toronto in 1990. He is still serving as a part-time pastor in a grass-root church. He spent most of his Sunday mornings speaking as an itinerant preacher in various churches.
