Emily Yip serves as the Associate Minister at New Life Now in downtown Manhattan, New York City. Born and raised from the mother church, Chinese Missionary Baptist Church, Emily has been actively involved in the church for most of her life.
Emily also has a passion to help those in need whether by doing community walk-outs to feed the homeless and hungry as well as going on missions trips. One of the most fulfilling moments in her life was attending her first short-term missions to Leogane, Haiti in 2009. And in August 2012, she worked alongside churches in London during the Olympic Games and in May 2013, traveled to France to intern with a pastor's family and local church in evangelism.
In her spare time, Emily enjoys reading, knitting, playing the guitar, and baking. If this doesn't take up all her time, she occasionally enjoys a mean game or tournament of ping pong at NewLifeNow!
