Justin YimChristian Union Ministry Director at Harvard Law
Justin grew up in NYC as the youngest son of a pastor, church planter, and missionary. After graduating with a degree in Psychology from the University of Rochester, he received his M.Div from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. While finishing up his seminary degree, he served at Bethany Church in New Hampshire for the next 11 years, as the Associate Pastor of Worship, Young Adults, and Youth. He also met his wife, Melissa, during this time, and in 2007, accepted a call to Grace Fellowship Church in the Capital District of NY, near Albany, to launch their first multi-site location, as Lead Pastor. For the next 11 years, he helped launch and oversee 4 locations, as the Executive Pastor of Multisites.
In over 22 years of experience with the local church, Justin’s passion has been to invest and develop the next generation of leaders for God’s Kingdom, by grounding them in the truth and power of God’s Word. He brings a vast diversity of experience in many aspects and levels of leadership, and is eager to contribute wherever God seems to lead.
He and his wife have 4 beautiful children—Sydney, Austin, Cooper, and Sawyer—and currently reside north of Boston, where they hope to make an impact on their local community for Christ.
