Elders Deacon Yong & Tai Tsai

Yong and Tai serve on the eldership board of the church, and Tai oversees church office functions and provides crucial administrative support to pastors and ministry leaders. Yong volunteers his time to take care a long list of behind-the-scenes church responsibilities, including handling legal issues, financial counseling for church members, church general management,  maintaining and upgrading church facilities to meet our growing needs, and organizing the Sunday lunch program. In Christian terminology, both Yong and Tai function as deacons, taking care of the physical needs of the church so that the pastoral leadership can focus on prayer and ministry of the Word.

Born to a Chinese family in Laos, Yong’s family left Laos due to escape communist regime and spent his teenage years in Bangkok, Thailand. He is a lead engineer at the Boeing Company, graduated from the University of Washington with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering, and speaks English, Mandarin, Laotian, and Thai.   Tai is from Thailand and holds a degree in business administration. They have one daughter Charis and a Welsh Corgi named Samson. For relaxation, Tai enjoys gardening and is an avid gym goer and Yong enjoys watching movies, playing golf, remodeling, and studying about financial investments.
