Although Sin Yea grew up in a Christian home, she was saved when she was 19. Ten years later, her relationship with God deepened and matured, as she started volunteering for youth ministry through her local church and YoungLife. She has always had a heart for the youth and credits that to God along with her 18 nieces and nephews. After living in California, Virginia and even Korea, she was brought back to Southern California. Sin Yea started praying for a local church to call home and found one at North Hills Baptist Church.
