LEADERSHIP

Our view of leadership at PBC is one of co-laboring. We start with submission to the Lordship of Jesus and the unifying work of the Holy Spirit. Each leader here at PBC (elder, pastor, deacon, and support staff) ministers to the church body by proclaiming the power of the Gospel in every circumstance. Our utmost desire is to give God the glory, to train up new disciples, and to minister to the whole church with faithfulness.

Alice Yan

Pastor to Children

Alice was born in Hong Kong and raised in England. She exchanged her degree in Applied Chemistry and a career in pharmaceutical research to become a wife and moved Stanford to be with her husband Jerry in 1985. While serving among graduate students, she also took the opportunity to attend Bible school and PBC became their home-away-from-home.

After adopting 2 daughters, she became more involved with Children’s ministry. Being a part of the children’s lives, helping them discover God’s grace and unconditional love is both a privilege and a gift.

Alice enjoys good food in the company of friends, taking strolls along the beach, visiting with family, and playing with children.

I received my initial training in pastoral counseling during the PBC internship program. Following ten years of lay counseling at PBC, I completed a doctorate in clinical psychology 1992 and soon joined the PBC staff.

My husband and I married in 1964. Our two adult children, their spouses, and our teenage grandchildren all richly gift our lives.

As Pastor of Counseling, I focus on training others to counsel more effectively. To that end, I disciple lay counselors individually and in small groups, teach classes, speak at retreats and seminars, and have an extensive writing ministry with material available on my website, biblegrapes.com and in my book, Grappling with Your Identity. A second book, Sex & Worship, is nearing completion.

Pastor to Middle School & Community Groups

I've had the privilege of serving at PBC since 2007. My wonderful husband, Jeff, and I live in East Palo Alto and enjoy time with our two daughters.

Born and raised here in the Bay Area, I attended UC Santa Cruz and Western Seminary. My teen years were rough, and I know first hand how challenging Middle School and High School can be. Those hard years drove me to always be involved with helping people. I became a believer a few days shy of turning 17 when my world around me was crumbling. God proved Himself to be the only constant, and filled me with joy and gratitude I never had before. As God entered my life with such unbelievable love, I too hope that others experience a love that will not fail them.
